The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), otherwise known as the Global Goals, are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity.

These 17 Goals build on the successes of the Millennium Development Goals, while including new areas such as climate change, economic inequality, innovation, sustainable consumption, peace and justice, among other priorities. The goals are interconnected – often the key to success on one will involve tackling issues more commonly associated with another.



Here are just a few of the many leaders of sustainable development initiatives, research, courses and projects within the IE Community...


As a leading academic institution, IE is dedicated to delivering quality education. Additionally, we reported 60 dedicated courses and activities that focus on SDG 4 and in 2018 we provided 137 scholarships covering 50% tuition.
