SDG 4

Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all

Education is the cornerstone of a healthy society. It empowers people to improve their lives and futures, and affords them the knowledge and competencies necessary for sustainable development.

This SDG has several 2030 targets to which every company can contribute. These targets aim to ensure that all girls and boys complete free primary and secondary education, and have access to quality early childhood development and care; secure equal access for all women and men to affordable and quality technical, vocational and tertiary education; substantially increase the number of youth and adults who have relevant skills for decent jobs and entrepreneurship; eliminate disparities in education; and ensure that all youth and a substantial proportion of adults achieve literacy and numeracy.
