In 2015, the United Nations adopted 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). They are a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to address the world’s biggest challenges, including ending poverty and hunger, improving health and education, making cities sustainable and tackling climate change. They define the UN’s development goals up to 2030.

Our Sustainable Development Goals

To meet the SDGs, the social and environmental change required cannot be addressed by one business acting alone. Zero hunger, quality education, responsible consumption and production, climate action, and eradicating modern slavery – these are transformational goals, and they require transformational change, brought about by a concerted effort. Government, business and society – and each of us as individuals – all have a stake in this global effort; because we all have an impact as well.
