Sustainability is more important than ever

Since the Sustainable Development Goals were launched in 2015 as the leading agenda for governing the global commons, the world has seen more urgent and bigger than ever global issues such as climate disasters, a pandemic, and the emergence of new technologies. In the year 2020, United Nations Member States declared the ‘Decade of Action’: The years until 2030 will be crucial to progress on the SDGs.  

Whereas negotiating global policies was until now mostly left to Member States, civil society is now expected to play a much larger role in the advancement of the SDGs. New responsibilities such as corporate reporting on SDG impact or sector-specific climate targets also bring opportunities: Civil society is now invited to the table to negotiate fundamental business policies on international level, for example when it comes to rethinking global food systems and the establishment of a global treaty on single-use plastics.
