Environment social governance


The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries – developed and developing – in a global partnership. They recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go together with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests”
The achievement of these SDGs requires the participation of all players in the global economy who must act locally, by implementing strategies that will end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure that by 2030 all people enjoy peace and prosperity
