Greenprints can help people understand the SDGs and how you can connect your initiatives to these broader, global goals.

The United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) first appeared in 2015 in the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The 17 goals “recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.”1

The goals provide an urgent blueprint, for both developed and developing nations, to collaboratively address social, economic, and environmental challenges.
