German term or phrase: einem persönlich gesetzten gesellschaftspolitischen Auftrag nachkommen

fulfill our the goal we have set ourselves on a social level
Explanation:
Would phrase something like this. I personally don't like "socio-political" in English except in high-flown academic texts. If this is in facct a politician talking or it's clear otherwise, I'd leave out the -political.

Alternatively, say: "set ourselves in terms of social policy"
