The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

A global roadmap for social impact

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) provide a universal framework to tackle the most pressing challenges affecting people and the planet today. The SDGs were created to unite people through action to create a better future—one without poverty, inequalities and environmental degradation.

These 17 goals focus on people, the planet, prosperity, peace and justice, and partnership—serving as a roadmap how stakeholders can work together to create the change we all want to see by the year 2030.
