The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development

The aims of the ENVforum are reflected in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development Goals. Since 2013, the ENVforum has been actively engaged in the global discussion surrounding sustainable development, which were later formally adopted by the UN Member States in the UN Sustainable Development Summit in September 2015.

About the ENVforum

Established in 2003, the Asia-Europe Environment Forum (ENVforum) is a partnership of Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF), Hanns Seidel Foundation (HSF), ASEM SMEs Eco-Innovation Centre (ASEIC), Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES) and the Government of Sweden through the Strategic Collaborative Fund administered by Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI).

The ENVforum aims to contribute to the formulation of sound decisions across all sectors that are mindful of their environmental, social and economic impacts and of the future generations. In doing so, we foster inter-regional cooperation between Asia and Europe on sustainable development and its environmental dimensions. Since our inception more than a decade ago, the ENVforum has organised over 70 high-level international conferences, roundtables and workshops bringing together multi-stakeholder representatives, and has produced multiple prominent research publications, country case studies, and policy papers.
