THE IMPERATIVE OF SUSTAINABILITY, Report delivered by the European Parliament
Integrating the SDGs into the EU agenda
Financial support from the S&D Group of the European Parliament
The EU needs a new analytical framework to study economic, social and environmental challenges in an integrated way. The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development of the United Nations defines 17 goals, which can be the foundation for such a new framework. As long as the Sustainable Develop- ment Goals (SDG) are not on the top of the political agenda, they will be more a window-dressing exercise than a tool to achieve the overall goal, which is the well-being of current and future generations.
