The Sustainable Development Goals Programme

Delivering real progress against urgent societal needs

Springer Nature's Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Programme aims to connect the researchers who are tackling the world’s toughest challenges with the practitioners in policy and business who desperately need those insights to achieve their goals in improving the world, by making our publishing activities more visible to our key communities through a variety of channels.

Here the data is shared according to each SDG focus. Learn more about the overall project here.
