The Sustainable Development Goals

SFU's 2022-2025 Strategic Sustainability Plan provides the foundation for SFU's sustainability efforts and helps guide our work towards the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals

17 goals to transform our world

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries—developed and developing—in a global partnership. 

SFU ranks among Canada's top 20 universities for our commitment to the SDGs in the 2023 Times Higher Education Impact Rankings. We are committed to bold actions for a better future.
