What are the SDGs?


In September 2015, world leaders from 193 countries came together to adopt the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The SDGs became the document to guide our social, economic and environmental actions to achieve a sustainable future by 2030. As a result, everyone has a responsibility in making the SDG agenda a reality.
