In General, Sustainability

The UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) in collaboration with SDSN Europe and the European Economic Social Committee (EESC) reveals in their European Sustainable Development Report that decisive actions must be taken in the European Union to avoid irreversible environmental and dangerous social tipping points and maintain the promise of achieving the Sustainable Development Goals and the objectives of the Paris Climate Agreement.

At the current rate, a third of SDG targets will not be achieved by the EU by 2030. The report also finds that the EU is responsible for significant negative ‘international spillovers’. Belgium is currently ranked 15 out of 34 and scores slightly above 70%. Explore Belgium data here and find out where we need to put in the most effort. Read the full report here.

To help SMEs achieve those objectives, Europe, Belgium and Brussels are deploying interesting funding opportunities for you.
