Council issues conclusions on sustainable development

On 22 June 2021, the Council approved conclusions reaffirming the EU’s strong commitment towards the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its Sustainable development Goals (SDGs).

The Council recognised that the Covid-19 pandemic is threatening progress towards the SDGs and therefore called for enhanced dialogue and concrete operational actions to accelerate their implementation.

The Commission was invited to engage in regular dialogue with the Council to further promote a strategic approach towards the SDGs implementation.

The conclusions also called on the Commission and EU Member States to carry out communications and awareness-raising campaigns on the 2030 Agenda to increase shared ownership by the citizens, the private sector and other relevant stakeholders.

The Council will review progress towards achieving the 2030 Agenda and will step up efforts to mainstream the SDGs in its work across policy sectors.

HOTREC welcomes the conclusions but it highlights the need for the sector to receive incentives and appropriate funding to meet the sustainability goals and accompany the digital age.
