About economy

The Sustainable Development (SD) Project Group supports postal operators in their efforts to incorporate the economic dimension into their sustainable development activities.

Ethical purchasing and socially responsible financial products

One activity of the SD Project Group consists of encouraging Posts to implement an ethical purchasing policy, i.e. environment-friendly and socially responsible.

One concrete example is the project to give rural populations in Africa access to postal financial services in cooperation with the International Fund for Agricultural Development.

Finally, the SD Project Group deals with ethics-related issues.
