G20 Contribution to the 2030 Agenda
Progress and Way Forward
As the world's premier forum for international economic co-operation, the G20 plays
a critical role in helping to achieve the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
Based on robust evidence and available data, this report examines how the G20's contributions
to the global goals across key sectors are already making a difference, while also
suggesting where it could go further in leading by example to support the global goals.
Collectively, G20 members account for around 85% of global gross domestic product,
75% of world trade and 80% of global carbon dioxide emissions – to name just a few
areas of the G20's influence. This report, commissioned by the Government of Japan
in support of its 2019 G20 Presidency, takes stock of the G20's progress to date against
its Action Plan on the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
