In September 2015 the United Nation approved the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which are included in the Agenda 2030 as goals to be reached or, at least, to move near. It is an important decision, following the process started with the Earth Summit in Rio ’92, the first world wide meeting on the Environment, when the governments of the different countries decided to do their best for the nature safeguard and the promotion of a Sustainable Development approach.
The EU on 22/11/16 declared the guide lines to implement Agenda 2030 with all the EU states “The EU and its Member States are strongly committed to implementing the Agenda to achieve sustainable development in its three dimensions – economic, social and environmental – in a balanced and integrated manner”. Moreover one of the basic EU documents (Roadmap to a Resource Efficient Europe ’11) stressed that the priority for Europe is to upgrade a sustainable economy within 2050.
17 Sustainable Development Goals are unique and acknowledge that ending poverty must go in tandem with strategies that:
- build economic growth;
- address a range of social need:
- Social protection;
- Job opportunities.
- Tackling climate change and environmental protection.
