The 17 Sustainable Development Goals, or SDGs for short, have been adopted by the UN. They apply globally with a view to creating a better world for all by 2030. You can find out more about them on our SDGs page.
In contrast, impact goals are much more specific, delineating in precise and tangible terms what an organiSation aims to achieve in order to play a part in meeting various SDGs. Think of the impact goals as milestones on the road to achieving the SDGs.
