About the Global Goals
The Sustainable Development Goals – SDG, drafted by the United Nations, have been unanimously adopted by the 193 UN state leaders present at the UN Global Compact in New York, September 25th-27th. The 17 goals advanced to the international community for the next 15 years aim at ending extreme poverty, fighting inequality and injustice and fixing climate change. The objectives are global in themselves, but their success depends on the local and national implementation efforts and ther are expected to trigger a chain reaction in the business sector and at the level of the administrative and political decisions.
Romania values this event and was represented, for the first time in the last decade, at its highest level, by president Klaus Iohannis.
