Exploring the Sustainable Development Goals

In 2015, leaders from around the world gathered to create and adopt a set of goals to "end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all as part of a new sustainable development agenda." These targets—known as the Sustainable Development Goals—set a vision for governments, organizations, businesses and citizens as we work together to make our world a prosperous, equitable and sustainable place for all people. At Opportunity, we look to the SDGs as a global benchmark for the progress we hope to make collectively over the next 15 years, and we are proud to play our part in exploring, working toward and achieving these goals.
