Working on the UN World's To Do List, the SDGs

Are you familiar with the United Nations World's To Do List for a Better World?

At Shoo-Foo, we are focusing at two of the United Nations World’s To Do List for a Sustainable Future.

 

SDG 12 Sustainable Consumption & Production

SDG 12 Ensure Sustainable Consumption and Production Patterns

"On that occasion, sustainable consumption and production was identified as one of the three overarching objectives of, and essential requirements for, sustainable development, together with poverty eradication and the management of natural resources in order to foster economic and social development. It was acknowledged that fundamental changes in the way societies produce and consume are indispensable for achieving global sustainable development."

 

SDG 15 Life on Land

 "Sustainable Development Goal 15 aims to protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss.

Forests have a significant role in reducing the risk of natural disasters, including floods, droughts, landslides and other extreme events. At global level, forests mitigate climate change through carbon sequestration, contribute to the balance of oxygen, carbon dioxide and humidity in the air and protect watersheds, which supply 75% of freshwater worldwide."
