Cross-cutting SDGs

In 2015, the international community, under the umbrella of the United Nations, adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its associated Sustainable Development Goals, 17 ambitious targets providing a globally agreed roadmap for transitioning to more social, environmentally, and economically sustainable development patterns.

P4TT’s ambition is to respond to the SDG call for innovation, focusing on identifying and bringing to the market deep and systemic transitions that are needed to move societies to more sustainable economic development patterns while enhancing the wellbeing of all.

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic these efforts are now more important than ever before.

The efforts are organized in partnership with a wide variety of stakeholders, industries, and institutions.

All P4TT work focuses on three cross-cutting SDGs:

SDG 8: Decent work and economic growth

Promoting sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all


SDG 9: Industry, innovation and infrastructure

Building resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovation

SDG 12: Responsible consumption and production

Decoupling economic growth from environmental degradation, increasing resource efficiency, and promoting sustainable lifestyles
