The 2030 Sustainability and Net Zero Agenda
In 2015, the United Nations General Assembly created a collection of 17 interlinked global goals designed to be a "blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all”.
These 17 goals are called The Sustainable Development Goals, or SDG's, and collectively are known as The 2030 Sustainable and Net Zero Agenda.
The 2030 Sustainable and Net Zero Agenda is a global framework of action for people, planet, prosperity, peace, and partnership. It integrates social, economic, and environmental dimensions of sustainable development, as well as peace, governance and justice elements.
