How do we contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals?

In 2015, the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Summit in New York adopted 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. They define the UN’s development agenda up to 2030.

We welcome and support the SDGs. We believe they will help to mobilize the action and innovation necessary to make a better and more sustainable world. This will need new ways of thinking and working, fresh approaches that create new opportunities – and a massive step up in collaboration among governments, NGOs, businesses, financial and donor institutions, schools and universities. The shared goal should be to make educated decisions for a sustainable future where economic growth goes hand in hand with a healthy environment and respect for human rights.

The SDGs underscore the relevance and significance of our Good Growth Plan. Its commitments directly contribute to SDG2 - Zero hunger - and significantly support nine of the other goals:
