Sustainable Development Goals
The Sustainable Development Goals (SGDs) are 17 societal goals, which were ratified by the UN in 2015. The goals are multi-layered and need to be tackled together to balance the three dimensions of sustainable development: the economic, social and environmental. Together with 192 other states Austria declared to support the SDGs. Raw materials and their processing have a considerable impact on development, economy and modern society.
