With the Sustainable Consumption Pledge, the EU Commission invites us to commit to sustainability by reducing our environmental footprint, demonstrating more circularity in our activities and respecting social sustainability. The  EU Commission’s Department for Justice (DG JUST), shares how the legal protection industry can accelerate its contribution to build  a better and more sustainable world.

The UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development provides a shared blueprint for achieving a sustainable future for all. 17 interlinked development goals (SDG) form an urgent call for action  to end poverty, protect our planet, and ensure all people enjoy peace and prosperity. This insightful session sheds light on the agenda and why the creativity, know-how, technology and financial resources from all of society are necessary to achieve the SDGs.

At the heart of the Agenda for Sustainable Development lies SDG 16, a vision of equal access to justice. Drawing on research by the world’s leading justice organisations and experts, a different approach proposes  putting people at the centre of justice systems and justice at the core of sustainable development.  We take a closer look at SDG 16 and moving from justice for the few to justice for all.
