Report Summary:
In 2015, the United Nations released the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which included 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), to end poverty while also improving global health, reducing inequality, and protecting the planet. Adopted by all U.N. Member States, the SDGs require the support of both the public and private sector to achieve and have become a common framework for governments and businesses to use for communicating their ESG initiatives. Global Goals: A Primer on The U.N. Sustainable Development Goals for Real Estate provides a general overview of why real estate firms are aligning with the SDGs, how they assess which of the SDGs are relevant to their business, how they align with the SDGs, and how they are being reported on, using current examples from the industry.
