The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is a call for developed and developing countries to take action as part of a global partnership to eradicate poverty, improve health and education, and combat inequality. It also calls for adopting a sustainable mindset for decision-making, investment and activities to cope with climate change and to protect the bio-diversity of the oceans and forests by every means possible. To encourage everyone to practice SDGs in everyday life, individual actions based on each SDG were also developed to become Good Life Goals. Based on the concept of A Journey into Sustainability, the dedicated online platform of ESG 21+ is built by Corporate Sustainability Department and IT Division, where SDGs, Good Life Goals, and sustainability literacy are fused into 21 everyday scenarios. During the activity, colleagues can log in each day to unlock a new scenario-based quiz. The game not only cultivates their sustainability habits, but also boosts their awareness and motivation by introducing the Company’s efforts in every aspect of SDG. Those who answer the daily question correctly will win a exclusive to that day and make a contribution to the society.
