The 17 Sustainable Development Goals set us on course for a more sustainable development, for both humans and the planet we inhabit.
On September the 25th, 2015, at the UN summit in New York, heads of state and government leaders from around the world laid out the objective that citizens, businesses and government authorities alike must increasingly create ongoing sustainable solutions and support a sustainable future.
These goals for future sustainable development, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), were adopted by no fewer than 193 member states and entered into effect on January the 1st, 2016. They detail specific objectives to be achieved within the coming years, by 2030 at the latest.
With these objectives therefore, demand for sustainable solutions has been formalized on a global scale, creating some unique opportunities for business – opportunities that require focus and coordinated efforts in order to be seized.
