2023 "GoldenKey-SDG Solutions" collection begins


Sustainable development is the “golden key” to solving current global problems.

2023 "GoldenKey-SDG Solutions" collection begins, marking a new journey for seeking and promoting excellent actions on sustainable development.

The "GoldenKey-SDG Solutions" Campaign was initiated by China Sustainability Tribune in October 2022. It aims to find and shape the SDG action models in China, spread the story of China's sustainable development action, and contribute to promoting sustainable development in China and even the world.

The GoldenKey Campaign has been held for three consecutive years, and has attracted the attention and recognition of all parties related to sustainable development. It has been widely participated in and supported by companies in China. As one of the most influential and international sustainable development activities in China, the GoldenKey Campaign was selected as the UN Good Practices in 2021, which was highly recognized around the world.

The GoldenKey Campaign is a race towards 2030, and also a promotion and exchange activity towards the UN SDGs. To find and collect more excellent actions with GoldenKey characteristics, the China Sustainability Tribune has started to collect SDG solutions this year. The collection is expected to last until August. Enterprises and experts are welcome to apply/recommend corporate actions that contribute to the UN SDGs at any time.

Based on the existing selection standard and process, the 2023 GoldenKey Campaign will select exemplary and influential excellent SDG actions, discover the story of China's sustainable development, contribute China’s SDG  solutions to the world, and pool more business strength for implementing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
