Canada's leading graphene research firm.
We believe that the commercial value of graphene lies in the ability to transfer its intrinsic properties into other materials, thus creating higher value materials and products which possess specifically enhanced characteristics. As a disruptive technology, graphene has the potential to replace or enhance the performance of existing materials in a wide range of applications and sectors.
We desire to take considered risks and show commitment with our partners.
Promoting ethically sound practices within GIT and in our partnerships.
We value the commitments to our clients and to each other.
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were born at the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development in Rio de Janeiro in 2012. The objective was to produce a set of universal goals that meet the urgent environmental, political and economic challenges facing our world. The SDGs are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity.
The SDGs replace the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), which started a global effort in 2000 to tackle the indignity of poverty. The MDGs established measurable, universally-agreed objectives for tackling extreme poverty and hunger, preventing deadly diseases, and expanding primary education to all children, among other development priorities.
The 17 Goals included in the SDGs build on the successes of the Millennium Development Goals, while including new areas such as climate change, economic inequality, innovation, sustainable consumption, peace and justice, among other priorities. The goals are interconnected, and often the key to success on one will involve tackling issues more commonly associated with another.
At GIT, we feel that our products and innovations can help move the needle and make lasting change in the fight against climate change.
