The United Nations’ (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a global call to action to promote prosperity while protecting the planet. Defined in the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the SDGs recognize that ending poverty goes hand-in-hand with strategies that build economic growth and address a range of social needs including education, health, social protection, and job opportunities, while tackling climate change and environmental protection.

- Goal 9: Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure
- Goal 12: Responsible Consumption and Production
- Goal 13: Climate Action
- Goal 15: Life on Land
- Goal 16: Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions
