* UN Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) : In September 2015, the UN General Assembly adopted sustainable development goals in order to achieve social sustainability across the globe. Building on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) that were focused on less-development locations, the UN SDGs set universal goals that should be met by all locations including advanced ones, and thus demand full engagement of civil society and businesses in the private sector as well as governments and experts in attaining these goals.
