17 global goals for sustainable development

With 17 global goals, the 2030 Agenda covers a wide range of topics. Areas of action are, for example, the increased commitment to peace and the rule of law, the fight against corruption, but also education for everyone or the protection of our climate and our resources. And no one should have to suffer from hunger any more.

Industrialized countries have a pioneering role

During the German G20 Presidency, the Chancellor emphasized the special responsibility of the leading industrialized and emerging countries to achieve the sustainability goals. The G20 countries should lead the way when it comes to bringing the 2030 Agenda to life.

Germany with a specific timetable

With the German Sustainability Strategy from the beginning of 2017, the Federal Government set out in concrete terms how these global sustainability goals are to be implemented in Germany. For this purpose, 63 specific goals were decided. Deviating from the four-year cycle of the strategy review, the Federal Government presented an updated supplement in autumn 2018. The public was also involved in this.

Sustainability is a joint effort

This is important because everyone has to work together for sustainable development. Institutional actors are, for example, the federal states, the Sustainability Council, the regional network points for sustainability, the science platform Sustainability 2030 and the economy. It benefits each of us. And each and every one of us can help ensure that we achieve our goals.

Monitoring and updating the strategy

The indicator report published every two years by the Federal Statistical Office is the basis for the Federal Government to adapt the measures.

And for the program of sustainability measures, with which the federal government commits itself to sustainable action in its authorities, it reports on implementation in an annual monitoring report.

The Federal Government is currently preparing the next update of the German Sustainability Strategy in 2020. To this end, it involves stakeholders and the public in nationwide dialogue conferences and through an online consultation.
