The Sustainable Development Goals

Creating the world we want

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.

Governments have responsibility to lead the way by setting national implementation plans, taking action to prepare the enabling environment and letting their constituents know that this agenda is important. At the same time, business will be indispensable in achieving the SDGs. Private sector action will be key to the success of each goal – through responsible business operations, new business models, investment, innovation and technology, and collaboration.

On the UN-Business Action Hub, you can connect and collaborate with stakeholders who are developing solutions to advance several of the SDGs.
