Sustainable Development

Sustainable Development

In January 2016, 193 UN member states started working towards a new set of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) aimed at making our world more prosperous, inclusive, sustainable and resilient.

The SDGs are an ambitious call to action for people, planet and prosperity. They seek to tackle inequality and end extreme poverty and hunger, with the overarching objective of leaving no one behind.
