Addressing the world’s most challenging problems

17 global goals, 169 targets, adopted by 193 members of the United Nations in 2015. But what will it really take to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for people, planet and prosperity by 2030?

To support the SDGs, we have launched the RELX Group SDG Resource Centre with leading edge content from all the businesses across RELX Group.

RELX and the SDGs

RELX Group is a dedicated signatory of the UN Global Compact which uses the SDGs to chart business participation in achieving these aims. Across RELX Group there is strategic alignment with the SDGs. Through our unique contributions as a business, RELX Group makes a positive impact with our knowledge, resources and skills, including universal, sustainable access to information, advancement of science and health, protection of society, promotion of the rule of law and justice and fostering communities. Our business is uniquely placed to support the SDGs.

What is the RELX Group SDG Resource Centre?

The SDG Resource Centre showcases the latest in science, law, business, events and more that can help drive forward the SDGs, drawing on content - articles, reports, tools, webinars and videos, legal practical guidance, and events from across the whole of RELX Group and key partners.

By making this content freely available, RELX Group aims to support the UN in the implementation of the SDGs. The SDG Resource Centre will inform the understanding of our customers, governments, researchers, companies, NGOs and individuals.

‘Businesses can make a real difference by harnessing their expertise to advance the SDGs. This is the aim of the RELX Group SDG Resource Centre,’ says Dr. Márcia Balisciano, Director of Corporate Responsibility at RELX Group.

‘We have to  invent, develop and launch countless new ideas and solutions within a very short time. In other words, the SDGs not only identify where we have to be in 2030 to create a sustainable world which leaves nobody behind, they also outline new markets and opportunities for companies all over the world,’ said Lise Kingo, Executive Director, UN Global Compact.
