SDGs and the Foundation

In 2015, the United Nations defined the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), a common agenda aimed at eradicating poverty and addressing other needs, seeking to combine strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequalities, and boost economic growth, also focusing on climate change, restoring biodiversity and ocean conservation.

The Foundation conducted in 2020, in collaboration with Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors (RPA), a pioneering project in the philanthropic world, which aimed to understand how its activities and projects align with the SDGs, looking for ways to measure that alignment.
