Business and Sustainable Development Goals
Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a set of global goals that the United Nations and the international community must achieve to end extreme poverty around the world until 2030. SDGs were adopted in September 2015 as a post-MDGs (Millennium Development Goals) agenda which had provided an important development framework from 2000 to 2015. SDGs consist of 17 goals and 169 targets prioritizing “people-centered” values, covering the social, economic, and environmental dimensions of sustainable development. UN Global Compact calls on businesses around the world to promote sustainable development through business operations, investment and solution creation. By aligning their business strategy and activities with the SDGs, businesses can contribute to the achievement of the Global Goals.
