Sustainable Development Goals

Global societies are undergoing intense transformations that have demanded measures aimed at sustainable development from the world’s governments. ABDE is aligned with this movement and operates in harmony with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), created by the United Nations (UN) in 2015 – the 2030 Agenda.

This agenda is a joint effort by countries, companies, institutions and civil society. The SDGs seek to ensure human rights, end poverty, fight inequality and injustice, achieve gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls, act against climate change, as well as address other challenges of our time. The private sector has an essential role in this process as a great holder of economic power and driver of innovations and technologies that influence and engage the most diverse audiences - governments, suppliers, employees and consumers.

ABDE works through partnerships with international organizations to promote technical cooperation and training for its members, with the objective of customizing global sustainable development principles – notably the 2030 agenda – to Brazilian reality. Since 2014, more than R$ 2 million have been invested by ABDE partners in training actions, seminars, webinars, studies and the development of pilot projects.
