Towards a strategy for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals in the European Union

The 2019 Europe Sustainable Development Report by the Sustainable Development Solutions Network and Institute for European Environmental Policy identifies policy priorities for the European Union (EU) to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals and to implement the Paris Climate Agreement. The report compares the performance of the EU and its 28 member states on all 17 SDGs and provides detailed country profiles using a mix of data sources.

This report complements the strong official Eurostat report on the SDGs by presenting a broad range of data on SDG achievement across the Union. The SDSN and IEEP have conducted three consultations with civil society, business, trade unions, and government representatives on suitable metrics for the SDGs. Drawing on the established SDSN methodology, they estimate how far the EU as a whole and each member state are from achieving the SDGs to provide actionable information for each country and group of stakeholders. The authors further combine metrics of SDG achievement into an overall SDG Index that allows for direct comparison across all member states. Across the world, European countries come closest to achieving the SDGs, but important challenges remain. Drawing on the data presented in this report, they outline the contours of an EU strategy to achieve the SDGs. Furthermore, some of the instruments that will be needed to develop and implement this strategy at EU and member states levels are highlighted.
