Sustainable Development Goals

 

The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), adopted by all 195 United Nations Member States in 2015, are an urgent call for action by all countries, businesses, NGOs and individuals to address the challenges which face our world. They recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.

At Fuel for Change we are doing our part to the achievement of these goals. Our central objective is to enable the achievement of SDG 7 – Affordable and Clean Energy for All, in particular target 7.1: by 2030, ensure universal access to affordable, reliable and modern energy services.

We will also contribute to the outcomes associated with SDGs 3, 5 and 11, namely:

  • Target 3.9 - By 2030, substantially reduce the number of deaths and illnesses from hazardous chemicals and air, water and soil pollution and contamination
  • Target 5.1 – By 2030, end all forms of discrimination against all women and girls everywhere
  • Target 11.6 – By 2030, reduce the adverse per capita environmental impact of cities, including by paying special attention to air quality and municipal and other waste management

Our program also facilitates the objectives of SDGs 1, 4, 8 and 10 as follows:

  • Target 1.1 - By 2030, eradicate extreme poverty for all people everywhere, currently measured as people living on less than $1.25 a day
  • Target 4.1 - By 2030, ensure that all girls and boys complete free, equitable and quality primary and secondary education leading to relevant and effective learning outcomes
  • Target 8.5 - By 2030, achieve full and productive employment and decent work for all women and men, including for young people and persons with disabilities, and equal pay for work of equal value
  • Target 10.2 - By 2030, empower and promote the social, economic and political inclusion of all, irrespective of age, sex, disability, race, ethnicity, origin, religion or economic or other status
