The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), adopted by the UN in 2015, are expected to form the main agenda to promote sustainable development globally til 2030.
FSC contributes to the implementation of these SDGs in different ways (see https://ic.fsc.org/en/web-page-/fsc-contributions-to-achieving-the-sustainable-development-goals).
The event is an opportunity to discuss the potential of FSC instruments to support the SDGs, and on how this can become part of the communication of FSC-certified companies.
