Why SDG Matters in Sustainability
The Most Member States of the United Nations to Adopt Sustainability Goals.
Sustainable Development Goals adopted by the 193 Member States of the United Nations at the General Assembly in September 2015, outlines a transformative vision for economic, social and environmental development.
Different people have different definitaiton of sustainability, having a systematic action plan can definitely help to focus on a common perspective, like the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This fantastic list of 17 goals, created by the UN at the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, provides a manageable framework to view the world’s problems. But all of these goals are vital.
These goals break down each area such as poverty and climate action into an overarching objective, facts and key results, providing a framework for governments, companies and individuals to become sustainable.
Without this UN-backed framework, we cannot buy into a sustainable vision of the world. Without the objectives and facts, we cannot act upon or pass on accurate and useful information.
We cannot maintain our quality of life, Earth’s biodiversity, or our global ecosystems without embracing a sustainable future.
The SocietyNext Foundation is an independent registered non-profit organization. We believes a sustainable future is built by everyone who works for, buys from, invests in, learns from, teaches about, or supports businesses striving to create a shared and durable prosperity for all.
We try to make meaningful contributions to unmet societal/environmental needs through our SDG World Records & InnoESG Prize Series. We believe philanthropic and partnerships for the goals (SDG 17) will equate to more Sustainability/ESG Impact!
