SDG 8

Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all

Sustainable economic growth requires society to create conditions that allow the whole working age population to have quality jobs which stimulate the economy while not harming the environment.

This SDG has several 2030 targets to which every company can contribute. These targets aim to increase global resource efficiency in consumption and production and decouple economic growth from environmental degradation; achieve full and productive employment and decent work for all women and men, with equal pay for equal work; eradicate slavery, forced labour and child labour; and protect labour rights and promote safe and secure working environments for all workers, including migrant workers.
