The UN Sustainable Development Goals - also known as the Global Goals or SDGs – are a plan to end poverty, extreme inequality, and climate change by 2030. Agreed in 2015 by world leaders, these goals can only be achieved with the support of businesses.

Legal & General has been awarded two stars by Support the Goals. Stars are awarded when businesses publicly demonstrate plans, commitments, actions, and progress towards the SDGs.
