At SEP, we fully support the UN's Sustainable Development Goals, not only creating our business around the 17 goals set by the UN, but in enhancing at least 6 out of these 17 goals.
Our goal is to achieve a more sustainable brand and a positive future for the refugees with SEP.
So, what is an SDG? The SDG's are a "blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all"; they were set in 2015 by the United Nations General Assembly and intended to be achieved by the year 2030. We have 10 years to achieve them - and time flies!
SEP Jordan was founded in 2014 and started operations in 2015: it is a beautiful coincidence that our business model was designed to be not only compliant with the SDG's, but to directly enhance at least 6 of the 17.
What's our favourite SDG? SDG17 acknowledges that the only hope we have to achieve the goals, is by establishing focused partnerships between large and small, East and West, for-profit and non-for-profit.
At SEP, we love all our partnerships and we believe that the only way to achieve our mission, is to work with larger luxury brands who wish to have a direct impact on forgotten communities.

SDG 1: NO POVERTY
