Targets of this goal

By 2030, it is necessary to achieve the following targets:

  • Achieve sustainable management and efficient use of natural resources
  • Reduce food waste by 50% from a consumer, production and supply perspectives.
  • Ecologically and rationally managing chemical and waste products and reducing release of pollutants
  • Reduce waste generation: prevention, reduction, recycling and reuse
  • Ensure people's access to information and knowledge about sustainable development

We can currently advance towards the attainment of this goal:

See also what we propose and tell us what you think


AI, together with IoT and data mining can be used to create digital models of production processes that allow making adjustments and new more sustainable production schemes


Sensor networks will allow micro-management of resources minimizing losses


Data analysis techniques can be used to study sustainable consumption patterns


The use of blockchain will facilitate the exchange of information and its transparency, increasing consumer confidence in the sustainability practices implemented by producers.


The proposed actions on which we introduce an opinion poll for this SDG, are described below:
