Sustainable Development Goals

Sustainable Development Goals

In September 2015, all 193 Member States of the United Nations adopted a plan for achieving a better future for all – laying out a path over the next 15 years to end extreme poverty, fight inequality and injustice, and protect our planet. At the heart of “Agenda 2030” are the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which clearly define the world we want – applying to all nations and leaving no one behind. The new global goals result from a process that has been more inclusive than ever, with Governments involving business, civil society and citizens from the outset. We are all in agreement on where the world needs to go. For the past several years, the UN Global Compact has played an important role in bringing business perspectives to the process of shaping the SDGs. Successful implementation will require all players to champion this agenda. www.unglobalcompact.org
