Paolo Gentiloni: As we fight pandemic, we must not lose sight of global challenges

Today, Eurostat, the statistical office of the European Union, has published the “Sustainable development in the European Union — Monitoring report on progress towards the SDGs in an EU context – 2020 edition”. The report provides a statistical overview of progress towards the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in the EU. Sustainability is an fundamental objective of the European Union and a clear priority of the von der Leyen Commission. All Commission policies, such as the transition to a climate-neutral and resource-efficient economy, are conducive to the achievement of the SDGs.
