Goal 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth

Sustainable Development Goals

Clear Neutral is committed to supporting the United Nations' 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through our carbon offset initiatives and our work in the lab grown diamond industry. These goals, established in 2015, guide nations towards achieving a better and more sustainable future by 2030.

Decent Work and Economic Growth aims to promote sustained, inclusive, and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment, and decent work for all. The goal recognises that economic growth must be accompanied by job creation, improved labor conditions, and increased productivity.

It focuses on promoting entrepreneurship, job creation, and access to financial services, particularly for women, youth, and marginalised groups. Goal 8 calls for the protection of labor rights, including the elimination of forced labor, modern slavery, and child labor. It emphasises the need to promote safe and secure working environments, provide social protection, and ensure equal pay for work of equal value. The goal also highlights the importance of supporting small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and fostering an enabling business environment.

Additionally, Goal 8 encourages sustainable tourism, productive and sustainable agricultural practices, and the development of sustainable and resilient infrastructure. By achieving this goal, societies can create inclusive economies, reduce inequality, promote social cohesion, and achieve sustainable development.
