Civil society criticises “Business As Usual” as Commission publishes its plans for implementing the SDG

SDG Watch Europe expresses its disappointment following yesterday’s publication of the European Commission’s Communication on the next steps for a sustainable European future “European action for sustainability”.  The Communication provides little new information about how the EU intends to make Agenda 2030 a reality in Europe or around the world. It is a justification of business-as-usual, which will not deliver on the ambitious commitments of the new global agenda.
