The Sustainable Development Goals are a call for action by all countries - poor, rich and middle-income - to promote prosperity while protecting the planet. They recognise that ending poverty must go hand-in-hand with strategies that build economic growth and address a range of social needs including education, health, social protection, and job opportunities, while tackling climate change and environmental protection.

We have been ranked top in the UK for climate impact and we also ranked in the UK’s top 10 and the global top 50 for the following Sustainable Development Goals

  • Decent work and economic growth

  • Life on land
  • Peace, justice, and strong institutions
