SDG People

“SDG People” is a story-catching campaign to share the unique contributions of people all over the world to make an impact toward the achievement of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals by 2030. We will share here pictures, stories, profiles and award-winners who inspire us in our shared efforts to create a more flourishing humanity. We also share below the work we commissioned from Ralph Reutimann as part of his SDG Impact Heroes Series. Each of the SDG Heroes holds a personal object symbolizing the single Goal they feel is most vital for them.


5th Element’s Commitment
to SDG #5 Worldwide

As part of its founding, 5th Element Group launched with an intentional commitment to promote gender equality, which is represented in UN Sustainable Development Goal #5. The company sponsored the Decade Of Women initiative launched at the United Nations on March 8, 2018: International Women’s Day.

After donating Decade Of Women to the Foundation for the Support of the United Nations, 5th Element in 2019 invested a portion of its revenue to launch The SDG5 Global Alliance to advance omniwin initiatives that empower women and girls around the world in partnership with Women Connect 4 Good Foundation and members of The SDG Circle. The SDG5 Global Alliance helps fund and promote inspirational programming, like its support of SDG #5 Artist in Residence, Kristin Simmons and her Women Of Change campaign.
