Our materiality assessment also informs our focus on advancing the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We recognize that achieving the SDGs could open up an estimated $12 trillion in market opportunities and believe all of the SDGs are essential to sustainable development. However, we have focused our efforts on the SDGs where we believe we can make the biggest impact and best apply our capacity and innovations as a global technology company. 

In 2017, we mapped the goals and their supporting targets, against our materiality assessment to focus our implementation efforts on four material SDGs. This year, we reassessed the biggest risks and opportunities of our environmental, social, and governance (ESG) efforts, and identified two additional SDGs to prioritize—Gender Equality (SDG 5) and Responsible Consumption and Production (SDG 12). With this prioritization completed, we will continue to improve our measurement and accountability toward these goals in the coming year.
