Field of action 3
Implementation of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG)
In September 2015, the United Nations adopted the Global Sustainable Development Goals in New York: 17 main targets, each with about 10 "sub-targets" that "will transform the world through ... the end of poverty, the protection of the earth and prosperity for all".
Germany has committed itself to these goals and implemented them in its sustainability strategy. It is now the time to ensure implementation. All actors are called upon to set these targets as a benchmark for their actions and to integrate them into their "DNA".
The German Federal Association for Sustainability accompanies this process from the outset and integrates the Sustainable Development Goals into its fields of action. And while we consider the emphasis on the equivalence of objectives as essential, we consider a prioritization of the goals as meaningful. By prioritizing, we understand the classification of the contents of the individual goals acccording to causes and consequences, which in turn result in activities and measures to fight causes and consequences.
Prioritization of the goals
On closer inspection, only one of the 17 targets will address a cause: Goal 10 - Reduced inequalities is a central approach to the transformation of the world.
All other goals address symptoms that occur as a result of the cause inequality, and their gradual achievement is the prerequisite for the protection of the earth and prosperity for all. The necessary development steps also have cross-connections among one another and must be questioned again and again.
