In 2015, the United Nations established a set of goals to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all. Known as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), they create a framework for sustainable business practices at the economic, social, and environmental levels. There are 17 SDGs in total, with specific targets for each, to be achieved by 2030.

While designed as a framework for public sector action, the SDGs also help align crucial contributions from the private sector to leave a better planet for future generations.

We undertook a review of all 17 SDGs and identified where Restaurant Brands International is expected to contribute, and where we can focus our resources to help drive the greatest impact.
