FoodDrinkEurope UNSDGs

INTRODUCTION

The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are an intergovernmental set of 17 Goals with 169 targets which are a core part of the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The 2030 Agenda is a universal agreement and, with regards to its implementation, it is relying on action by all countries (developed and developing) mobilising governments, institutions and stakeholders (citizens, civil society, private sector, academia, etc.), at all levels.

Within this context, FoodDrinkEurope and its members are actively working towards implementing the UN SDGs. However, implementing the key goals and targets can’t be done independently and will require key partnerships along the food chain and beyond. Cooperation with key institutions and agencies at European and global level are thus essential in order to foster positive results.

We believe that the establishment of the Commission high-level multi-stakeholder platform on the implementation of the SDGs at European level, where FoodDrinkEurope is a member, is a positive example demonstrating this.
