Sustainability GradFUTURES Learning Cohort

Overview of the Sustainability GradFUTURES Learning Cohort

Join Siemens professionals, industry experts, Princeton alumni, faculty and staff for seven unique sessions focused on the elements of the United Nation’s 2030 agenda for sustainable development.

There are 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set out in the United Nations` (UN) 2030 Agenda outlining humanity’s consensus on what constitutes progress. They’re also a yardstick for measuring an organization’s impact on the world. While Siemens’ activities contribute to achieving all 17 SDGs, the company’s impact is greatest on Good Health and Wellbeing (SDG 3), Affordable and Clean Energy (SDG 7), Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure (SDG 9), Sustainable Cities and Communities (SDG 11), and Climate Action (SDG 13). Climate Action – i.e. the fight against climate change – is one of the best-known SDGs.
