SDG 15

Protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss

Land degradation, deforestation and desertification – caused by human activities and climate change – pose big challenges to sustainable development and undermine the livelihoods of millions of people.

This SDG has several 2030 targets to which every company can contribute. These targets aim to ensure the conservation, restoration and sustainable use of terrestrial and inland freshwater ecosystems; halt deforestation, substantially increase reforestation, combat desertification and restore degraded land and soil; ensure the conservation of mountain ecosystems and reduce the degradation of natural habitats; halt the loss of biodiversity and protect and prevent the extinction of threatened species; take urgent action to end poaching and trafficking of protected species; and prevent the introduction of invasive alien species.
