In 2015, all 193 UN Member States unanimously adopted 17 SDGs pledging to end poverty, protect the planet, and secure peace and prosperity for everyone around the world by 2030. The achievement of the 17 goals, and the 169 associated targets, relies on close collaboration between the private and public sectors to advance towards global environmental, social and economic sustainability. The SDGs also provide a universal language for all actors to discuss their sustainable practices and monitor their achievements. On this page we present some of the activities and outputs of FIVS over the last 15-20 years and show how we have been seeking to encourage environmental, social, and economic sustainability in the industry over that period. Although the whole structure and emphasis of our work is sustainability-oriented, it seemed appropriate at this time to present it through the lens of the UN SDGs to make the magnitude and scope of our commitment clearer and more accessible to a wider audience. More information regarding the interaction of FIVS with the UN SDGs can be found in our brochure FIVS & the UN SDGs: Walking the Talk.
