How has the EU progressed towards the Sustainable Development Goals?

The von der Leyen Commission has made sustainability an overriding political priority for its mandate. All Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) feature in one or more of the six headline ambitions for Europe, announced in the Political Guidelines, making all Commission work streams, policies and strategies conducive to achieving the SDGs.
