Sustainable Development Goals

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set out in the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which came into force at the beginning of 2016, aim to advance sustainability and equality around the world. The 17 SDGs apply universally, and focus on ending poverty, protecting the planet, and promoting peace and prosperity for all people. Between now and 2030, a wide spectrum of actors from government, civil society, academia and the private sector will work to ensure that the Goals are fully implemented. As a global corporation, Volkswagen is committed to the SDGs and is actively contributing to the actualization of these global development goals through its innovative vehicles, intelligent mobility solutions and wide-ranging activities in support of sustainability.
