The Geological Society of London has published a joint briefing note with the British Geological Survey (BGS) and Geology for Global Development (GfGD), outlining the ways in which geologists are key to achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Adopted by world leaders at the United Nations Sustainable Development Summit on 25 September 2015, the SDGs are an ambitious set of 17 goals that aim to eradicate poverty, ensure universal access to basic services, tackle inequality, end unsustainable consumption patterns, and facilitate inclusive economic growth, social development and environmental protection.
