The awareness of society in recent decades regarding sustainable development and care for the planet had its result at the end of 2015, when the United Nations promoted an initiative that would give continuity to the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). After a negotiation process involving 193 UN member states, a series of global goals were adopted with very clear purposes: to protect the planet, eradicate poverty and ensure international prosperity. These goals were approved at a summit held in New York through a high-level plenary meeting of the United Nations General Assembly, and were included in the so-called Sustainable Development Agenda - or Agenda 2030 - through 17 goals, or Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), to be achieved by that date.
