Working towards sustainability

The evolution of international events in recent decades and their impact on the deterioration of the environment and the quality of life of millions of people has provided two great lessons for the public, private and social sectors. First, working for sustainable development is not an elusive option for any sector of society. Second, individual responses to international problems translate into ineffective and unsustainable solutions.

Aware of this pressing reality, the United Nations promotes and leads the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. With this, it calls upon the public, private and social sectors to engage in multi-stakeholder alliance frameworks in order to implement this agenda and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).
