ICTs serve as catalysts for achieving all of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by the UN Membership in 2015. Several of the SDGs are directly related to the environment and the climate.
ITU actively promotes the achievement of the SDGs through its work by linking and incorporating the SDGs into its strategies, and by aligning its activities and actions, accordingly. ITU highlights the role that ICTs will play in achieving the SDGs and environmental sustainability, through ICT projects and activities in the area of environmental protection. Through this, ITU directly contributes to the implementation of Goals 7, 12 and 13 of the SDGs.
