Global Goals, also known as Sustainable Development Goals [SDGs], were born in 2012. The aim was to produce a universal set of goals to help deal with urgent political, environmental, and economic challenges experienced around the world. Here is why they are important.
What makes SDGs unique is that everyone around the world can contribute, with every contribution, small or significant, making an impact in the world. They have shaped the business environment around the world, and many businesses have reached their full potential.
They have helped raise awareness of gender inequality, a leading contributor to poverty. There have been numerous projects targeting gender quality, such as woman empowerment, enabling women to have a voice, and having equal opportunities like men in societies that discriminate against women.
These are just a few examples of how SDGs are impacting the world. The goals, 17 in total, have undeniably made the world a better place.
