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.
