Sustainable Development Goal for: SEPT 2019

Each month we let you know which of the UN SDGs (or Global Goals) is the particular focus around the world. With the Climate Action Summit coming up in September, there will be a lot of focus around progress to tackle climate change. However, September is also a good month to reflect on all the Global Goals and consider how these impact your firm or organistion and what more you could be doing to help delivery.

The Sustainable Development Goals are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate, environmental degradation, prosperity, and peace and justice. The Goals interconnect and in order to leave no one behind, it ís important that we achieve each Goal and target by 2030. Click on any specific Goal below to learn more about each issue.
