The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) represent a shared and universal commitment to deliver on 17 ambitious Global Goals for people and the planet by 2030. When the United Nations General Assembly adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, they recognized that partnerships will play a crucial role as vehicles for mobilizing and sharing knowledge, expertise, technologies, and financial resources.

The Microsoft mission—to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more—aligns strongly with the UN global agenda for sustainable development from 2015 through 2030. We believe the digital transformation of the global economy can make a difference and help address the challenges underlying the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Through a wide range of programs, partnerships, and initiatives we support, Microsoft seeks to advance the SDGs and contribute to a sustainable future that is truly for everyone.
