Scotland was one of the first countries in the world to sign up to adopting the Global Goals in 2015. More than 190 countries have now signed up to the vision to end poverty, hunger, inequality and to protect the environment.
We play an active role in the implementation of the Scottish sustainable development agenda through our work on sustainability and climate change, local environmental quality, sustainable development education, and food and the environment. Sustainable development is at the heart of our vision, mission and strategic objectives. In aligning our work to the Global Goals, we have a clear view on how we contribute to, support, and promote understanding of, and engagement with, sustainable development. We are committed to evidencing and demonstrating how our activities contribute to the Global Goals.
Across our own activities we have identified where we have the biggest potential to contribute to the 17 Global Goals and their 169 targets. We have identified eight key goals that we can strongly evidence contribution to.
