Sustainable Development Goals

The SDGs define the global priorities and aspirations for 2030 in areas that affect the quality of life of all the world’s citizens and those yet to come.

There are 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that represent an urgent call to action from all countries – developed and developing – for a global partnership. The SDGs recognise that the eradication of poverty and other deprivations must be accompanied by strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and stimulate economic growth – while combating climate change and preserving ecosystems.

These global goals undertaken by the 193 countries of the United Nations have the ambition to “leave no-one behind” by establishing a common language for all stakeholders, set sustainability targets focussing on critical areas for humanity, and are structured around 5 Principles: Planet, People, Prosperity, Peace and Partnerships.
