      While drinking responsibly and in moderation can be an enjoyable part of everyday life, harmful drinking, whether on a single occasion or over long periods of time, can have negative consequences for individuals, families and businesses. As part of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and Non-Communicable Disease Framework, all member states of the UN agreed to a voluntary target of 10% reduction in the harmful use of alcohol, as appropriate, within the national context. Employers have an interest in helping to meet that goal.
