Supporting the Global Goals
In 2015, the United Nation’s Member States met and agreed on 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), also known as the Global Goals or SDGs. Achieving these would mean an end to extreme poverty, inequality and climate change by 2030.
Happy Creative is proud to support the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals.
The wellbeing of our society matters to us
We recognise that the wellbeing of our business cannot be separated from the wellbeing of ourselves and our society. We give back our time, skills and money to benefit society.
As part of our purpose to spread happiness, the wellbeing of our society matters, this is why we’ve chosen to support these two goals.
