Why we named our company Goal 17
The name Goal 17 was inspired by the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
Adopted by the United Nations in 2015 as the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all, the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (“SDGs”) include ending poverty, fighting inequality, and addressing the urgency of climate change.
Goal #17 states that: “A successful sustainable development agenda requires partnerships between governments, the private sector, and civil society. These inclusive partnerships— built upon shared principles and values, place people and the planet at the center— and are needed at the global, regional, national and local levels.”
We are a media and finance network building partnerships for a better world.
We are Goal 17.
