Sustainable Development Goals What are the 'Sustainable Development Goals'? The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a universal set of goals agreed by United Nations member states with the aim of ending poverty, protecting the planet and ensuring prosperity for all by 2030. Each goal has specific targets to reach by 2030. For the goals to be reached, everyone needs to do their part: governments, the private sector, civil society and the public.
