The world seeks to create ways to transform society without exclusion, to produce energy without destroying the environment. With hunger plaguing millions of people, there are still many challenges to be met, which is why the 2030 Agenda was created.
Nearly 200 countries came together in 2015 to propose a social development agreement covering everything from sustainable initiatives to poverty eradication.
193 countries have signed this agreement after the United Nations (UN) coordinated some topics part of the 2030 Agenda. With less than ten years to reach the agreement’s deadline, several countries are running out of time to fulfill the 17 Goals of Sustainable Development (SDG), which are:
- Eliminate Poverty
- Erase Hunger
- Establish Good Health and Well-Being
- Provide Quality Education
- Enforce Gender Equality
- Improve Clean Water and Sanitation
- Grow Affordable and Clean Energy
- Create Decent Work and Economic Growth
- Increase Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure
- Reduce Inequality
- Mobilize Sustainable Cities and Communities
- Influence Responsible Consumption and Production
- Organize Climate Action
- Develop Life Below Water
- Advance Life On Land
- Guarantee Peace, Justice, and Strong Institutions
- Build Partnerships for the Goals
Brazil is also part of this initiative, where Light DeFi’s first photovoltaic plant (LIGHT) will be installed. Through these goals, the 2030 Agenda intends to create a more sustainable world, where production is aligned with the environment, without polluting or degrading ecosystems.
