In September 2015, the 193 member nations of the United Nations unanimously adopted 17 global Sustainable Development Goals. These goals, which are to be achieved by 2030, are designed to eliminate poverty and create a sustainable world.
The 17 global goals have been subdivided into 169 intermediary goals, which are to be measured using a variety of indicators. Each nation is responsible for implementing and monitoring these sustainable goals. Each nation is also encouraged to develop its own action plans.

Achieving these goals will require collaboration between governments, civil society and the business community.
The Fund is collaborating to promote these goals in different ways. Read more in the Annual and Sustainability Report 2017. (PDF document, 3,1 MB)
