Ahead of the UN special summit: industrialized nations are at risk of missing the new Sustainable Development Goals

This infographic released on Tuesday, Sept. 8, 2015 shows the sustainability ranking of OECD countries. This is the result of a comparative study of all the 34 members of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, conducted by Germany’s Bertelsmann Foundation on the basis of 34 indicators for the 17 future Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for 2030. The study is the first one in the world to systematically investigate the present status of each of these countries, both individually and in comparison with one another. This snapshot additionally identifies countries that can serve as role models with regard to particular Sustainable Development Goals, whilst also pointing out where substantial deficits still exist.

The 193 member states of the United Nations on Friday will adopt 17 new development goals to be achieved by 2030. The goals will be added to the world agenda at a global summit just before the annual gathering of world leaders at the UN General Assembly.

The new goals replace the eight Millennium Development Goals adopted at a summit in 2000. Those expire at the end of 2015.
