What are the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals?

Understanding the UN SDG's

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals represent global targets for individuals, organizations, and national governments to adopt, integrate, and achieve sustainable processes by 2030. Although broad and far-reaching, the intended objective of each goal impacts our economies, societies, and biosphere.

A list of 17 goals were developed in 2015 (Shown below) with a spread of 169 targets per goal. In order to measure progress and compliance, each goal has between 1-3 indicators with solution teams encouraged to pursue open innovation and share data on the effectiveness of their projects.

Although the UN SDGs were created in 2015 and have undergone significant promotion, a majority of people globally still remain 

unfamiliar with these targets and their significance. More often than not, those who are familiar are at a loss of how to contribute and become involved. 

It is our intention to generate more visibility, discussion, thought, and action around these goals which impact us regardless of our location. Through a combination of sustainable DLT, human centered design, and strategic finance we are confident that together we can surprise stakeholders and surpass expectations related to these goals.
