About the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

In 2015, 193 countries signed onto the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which includes a comprehensive set of goals – the Sustainable Development Goals, or SDGs – for all countries to achieve by the year 2030.  Also called the Global Goals, the SDGs represent a universal call for action to improve and even transform the greatest challenges facing humanity.  The 169 targets within the 17 Goals are an urgent call for sustainability through innovation, transformation and sustainable development.

Although the SDGs have been named “the greatest chance we have to improve life for future generations (UNDP),” they are also collectively the most ambitious goals ever attempted on a global scale.  As such, they cannot be achieved unilaterally.  We at WSDG look forward to working with you to train and certify your people and ensure you achieve success that provides lasting benefits to your organization and beyond. WSDG is uniquely positioned as a consultancy intertwined with the University of Waterloo, Canada’s most innovative comprehensive university for 26 consecutive years.  As a result, WSDG provides you with the best possible information and the most effective, custom solutions for making tomorrow’s vision a reality today.
