The Azores Sustainability Charter is an initiative of the Azores Government to reinforce the sustainable development of the entire territory.

It aims to support the adoption of the Agenda 2030 principles in an inclusive and comprehensive way in the different sectors of society. The Charter is aligned with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, and with a fundamental role for its materialization in the Azores. This is an important contribution to a more fair, dignified, inclusive and sustainable world.

Subscribing to the Charter is making a public commitment to responsible, fair and transparent management.

The subscribing entities define three commitments per year that contribute in an objective and verifiable way to the Agenda 2030. In the year of accession, all entities assume the same three commitments – a way of starting from the same starting point. The Sustainability Charter team is on hand to help new subscribers acquire the necessary tools to measure and communicate sustainability indicators with transparency and credibility. Every year, the subscribing entities are invited to renew their subscription, adding three new commitments – these already chosen individually according to the priorities identified during their first year in the Charter.
