The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, “provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet” (UN 2021). The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are the world’s shared plan to end extreme poverty, reduce inequality, and protect the planet by 2030. Many businesses and organizations have joined this important effort.
The charitable mission of the Foundation for a Smoke-Free World, Inc. is to improve global health by ending smoking in this generation. This mission naturally lends itself to advancing several SDGs. The Foundation’s Strategic Plan 2022-2024 includes three core work streams: Health and Science Research, Agricultural Diversification, and Industry Transformation. The accompanying SDG map provides a visual illustration of how the Foundation’s work aims to materially impact several SDGs, and this report provides an explanation of its commitment to achieving these important goals.
