SDG 11

Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable

Half of humanity now lives in cities, and the number is increasing. For cities to thrive we must address the pressures that rapid urbanization is placing on freshwater, infrastructure, air quality and people’s health.

This SDG has several 2030 targets to which every company can contribute. These targets aim to ensure access for all to adequate, safe and affordable housing and basic services including transport; enhance inclusive and sustainable urbanization and strengthen efforts to protect and safeguard the world’s cultural and natural heritage; significantly reduce the number of people adversely affected by disasters; and reduce the adverse per capita environmental impact of cities, paying special attention to air quality and waste management.
