17 Sustainable Development Goals
In 2015, the United Nations defined 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). And with these SDGs, a deadline to comply with them: 2030.
These goals aim to end poverty, combat inequality, and prevent climate change through the joint work of governments, businesses, and citizens.
EDP has set concrete goals for more than half of these SDGs, setting very clear goals for their fulfillment.
