EC published its 2020 EU SDG Monitoring Report on Sustainable Development
The European Commission (EC) recently published its regular monitoring report
towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in the EU context. This report presents a statistical overview of the most recent trends of the EU SDG indicators over the past five years, which is based on the EU SDG indicator set, developed in cooperation with a large number of partners and stakeholders. The indicator set comprises 100 indicators distributed over the 17 SDGs. The importance of research and innovation is recognised under SDG 9 in order to find lasting solutions to social, economic and environmental challenges.
Sustainable development has been at the heart of European policy for a long time. The EU has fully committed itself to delivering on the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its 17 SDGs and its implementation, as outlined in the papers ‘Towards a Sustainable Europe by 2030’
and ‘The European Green Deal’
