This report represents more than a decade of research on sustainable business. Together with the UN Global Compact Progress Report, it forms the world’s most comprehensive research to date on business contribution to the SDGs, advancing Goals 12 and 17.
Advancing goals 3, 12, 14 and 17, this article proposes an informed plan for countries to work together for the safe and responsible use of chemicals.
This journal article addresses goals 3, 12 and 15 by looking at public perceptions of, and attitudes towards, synthetic biology and its applications to agriculture and food production.
Linking to SDGs 6 (clean water and sanitation), 12 (responsible consumption and production) and 17 (partnerships for the goals), this website catalogues and facilitates water stewardship projects in river basins and regions around the world.

This microplastics special issue compiled by Trends in Analytical Chemistry supports many of the SDGs, namely SDGs 3 (good health and well-being), 9.5 (enhance scientific research), 12 (responsible consumption and production), 14 (life below water) and 15 (life on land).
Contributing to SDGs 7, 9 and 12, this critical literature review surveys the existing environmental life cycle assessment (LCA) studies on grid-scale stationary lithium-ion battery energy storage systems, and highlights research gaps concerning comprehensive environmental impacts. Several recommendations for future stationary storage LCA studies are proposed.
This paper focuses on the integration of a pregnant leach solution (PLS) - derived from a NiMH recycling stream - into a nickel production plant. Although toxic Cd is not present in NiMH batteries, it ends up in the battery waste stream, preventing direct integration of the waste into the primary process. This study removed Zn, Fe, Al, Mn and Cd ions from the PLS using a two-step solvent extraction process, so that the Ni and Co remaining in solution could be integrated into the nickel production process, addressing SDGs 7, 9 and 12.
