This chapter explores goals 1 and 10 by examining whether the social sustainability enjoyed by sugar industry employees can be maintained given expanding beet production, falling world prices, promotion of healthy diets and the development of sugar alternatives.
Sherwood et al. elaborate on the role of one particular organic solvent, in light of a recent legislation on restricting its use in the European Union. Bruce Lipshutz pleads for a paradigm shift in chemical synthesis that focuses on the development of new chemistry in water rather than continuing the traditional route, which comes with many costs for the environment. This supports SDG 9 (industry, innovation and infrastructure) and SDG 12 (responsible consumption and production).

An increasing number of cities and local governments adhere to transnational initiatives on climate change mitigation. Quantification of their contribution to the Paris Agreement commitments is lacking. To address this, the climate mitigation trajectory to 2050 of Covenant of Mayors (CoM) signatories has been studied. This addresses SDG 11 (sustainable cities and communities) and 13 (climate action).

The goal of this manuscript is to examine whether the current EU calculation method for the energy efficiency of heat pumps is sufficiently accurate to inform consumers. Simplifications and disregarded influences may lead to disinformation and result in market disturbances. This supports SDG 7 (clean and affordable energy), 9 (Industry, innovation and infrastructure) and essentially 13 (Climate action).
The Scottish fishing industry depends upon a healthy flow of ecosystem services and the factors affecting ecosystem services for fishing are varied and challenging. Part of Scotland's pledge to the UN SDGs can be met by better fisheries management. This paper directly support knowledge on Goal 14, Life below water.
