SALTO Systems has committed to helping achieve the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as defined by the United Nations (U.N.) General Assembly.

“SALTO Systems has undertaken a profound transformation towards an increasingly sustainable model to respond to its environmental and social impacts, as well as to the main challenges which the world is facing today in the access control and security market. By proactively responding to social issues, SALTO contributes to the achievement of specific SDG objectives through its responsible corporate policies,” said Javier Roquero, SALTO Systems CEO, in a prepared statement.

In September 2015, all 193 U.N. member states adopted the 17 SDGs. The SDGs set a global agenda for overcoming poverty, protecting the planet, and promoting peace and prosperity.

Many of the company goals are specific to environmental sustainability, such as climate change, sustainable operations, responsible consumption, and product eco-design. SALTO has achieved ISO 14001 certification and becoming 100% carbon neutral in its factory headquarters.

“SALTO’s commitment to corporate social responsibility requires us to be thoughtful about the impact of our business practices and policies. We believe the way we work, the technology we develop, and the solutions we provide help contribute to many of the U.N. SDGs – ranging from our company practices to our commitment to moving towards a circular economy,” said Roquero. “At SALTO, we strive to be a pioneer in shaping the transformation to a better, safer, more digital, more climate-friendly, more sustainable world across our locations worldwide.”
