Support the UN's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) came into force in 2016. The 17 SDGs aim to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all by 2030. To achieve the SDGs, all aspects of society need to play their part. The construction and property sector has an essential role in delivering the SDGs and their associated targets. As part of the family of BREEAM standards, CEEQUAL enables significant contributions towards meeting the SDGs – see how here.
