UN Sustainable development goals: Industry view from Symrise

To achieve a better and more sustainable future for all, the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were defined by the United Nations in 2013. They deal with the most important social changes that humanity must make.

The United Nations believes that achieving these goals will create a better future for everyone, and that each of these goals can be achieved by 2030. The goals are a call to all countries to promote prosperity while protecting the planet. They recognise that the promotion of economic growth must go hand in hand with strategies that end poverty and address a range of social needs such as education, health, social protection and employment opportunities, while promoting climate change and environmental protection.
