This report explores the results of the second GlobeScan- SustainAbility Survey evaluating progress on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs or the Global Goals).
In 2019, we polled sustainability experts to evaluate progress on individual Global Goals, rank their relative urgency and share insights into the priorities within their own organisations. We also asked which specific SDGs experts thought individual corporate sectors should focus on.
More than 450 experienced professionals from North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America and Africa responded to our survey. Throughout this report, we draw comparisons between our findings and the data we collected from our previous SDG survey two years ago. We also examine progress made since 2005 when we first asked our pool of expert respondents to comment on global progress on sustainable development.
