Introduction to the SDG Series
The Sustainable Development Goals or Global Goals were made by the United Nations in 2015 and adopted by 193 countries who committed to work on solving the global issues with their mandate.
The Sustainable Development Goals consist of
- 17 Goals
- 169 Targets
- 232 Indicators
Companies and individuals might have more interest in a few of the goals, and as such it is voluntary for them to work actively with the goals by using the relevant targets and their indicators to understand the roots of the problems, and see where they have an opportunity to solve the issues with their skills and capabilities.
- Key insights about the SDGs
- The SDGS are interconnected
- Built for governments, but excellent innovation tools for businesses and individuals
- Developed to solve the challenges in a systemic level (not just curing the symptoms)
- Non-binding, which means they can be worked with in the extent you wish to.
