Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

In 2015, the 193 UN member states adopted the "2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development" and thus announced 17 essential sustainability goals, also known as Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The SDGs and their 169 sub-goals encompass the world's greatest economic, environmental and social challenges of our time. They represent a roadmap for the future that aims to enable a decent life worldwide while permanently preserving the natural foundations of life. Based on the SDGs, a company can question and classify its impact on the environment and society.

To make the SDGs measurable, the UN Statistical Commission, together with the national statistical offices, has developed 232 global indicators to measure the subgoals. These goals are to be achieved by 2030 by all developing, emerging and industrialized countries. The SDGs focus in particular on disadvantaged and discriminated population groups in order to make the world a more just and social place.
