UN’S Sustainable Development Goals

yellow diamond

In 2018 and going forward the Banksia Sustainability Awards will be based around the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), otherwise known as the Global Goals. It is our intention for these Awards to become the barometer for progress towards the SDGs in Australia. 

Why? Because aligning the Banksia Sustainability Awards with these global goals will provide a gauge of Australia’s progress towards them, and will ensure we are contributing to the international push for sustainable development. 

The SDGs are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. They came into effect in January 2016, aiming to create a better world by 2030. 

Join us in embracing this change and learn how your amazing effort fits with the global context via the SDGs.
