In 2015, the United Nations member states adopted the UN Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs). These 17 goals were adopted by participating governments in an effort to work towards ending poverty, protecting the environment, and bettering the lives of people everywhere. Many corporations are using these goals in order to conduct their businesses in a manner that improves the lives of the people in areas where they are located. To date, however, progress on the goals is falling far short of being achieved by 2030.
