A set of 17 goals, which include 169 targets, the sustainable development goals (SDGs) are a universal plan of action for people, planet and prosperity. Adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015 through the adoption of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the SDG’s are intended to be tackled as a group rather than individually and are deeply interconnected, i.e. progress on one goal can have a significant impact on progress in meeting others.
Circular economy thinking leverages several economic and environmental SDG clusters¹, thereby impacting them all. A circular economy is based on the principles of designing out waste and pollution, keeping products and materials in use, and regenerating natural systems².
At ocean-i™ we have identified several targets within the SDG’s that we will achieve in adopting our business-unusual-model.
