BOOM 2024 & the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

We’re aligning ourselves with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs, also known as the Global Goals) set by the UN, encompassing 169 targets to be achieved by 2030. They set out a vision for a world free from poverty, hunger and disease.

At BOOM Summit, we want to do our part to promote the achievement of these goals in our own value chain. The SDGs that we support and work towards are:

  • Opt for greener travel alternatives. Walk, cycle, or hop on the train instead of relying on your car. Due to Basel’s central location, you can easily plan your journey via the three railway stations and the major motorways.
  • In your hotel, be a part of the conservation effort – request a towel change only when it’s truly necessary.
