Research, development and commercialisation are three important stages in pharmaceuticals and to advancing goal 3. This chapter explores the role of biophysical characterisation in this process.
Integration and interconnection are two key themes in this chapter, which primarily addresses goals 8 (decent work and economic development) and 13 (climate action) although has links to several others.
This chapter supports Goal 2 (zero hunger) and Goal 17 (partnership for the goals) through its study of the role the private sector plays in agricultural development.
Linking to Goal 11, this report provides a collection of case studies from participants of the Global Compact Cities Programme.
Linking Goal 12, this report illustrates how Global Compact signatories can implement the ten principles throughout their supply chains and integrate sustainability into procurement strategies.

Agricultural systems models worldwide are increasingly being used to explore options and solutions for food security, climate change adaptation, and mitigation and carbon trading problem domains. Improvements to the Agricultural Production Systems sIMulator (APSIM) can contribute to advancing SDG 15 and minimising the adverse environmental effects of food production.

Record attempt has solar flair
An idea spawned a decade ago finally becomes a reality as Solar Impulse prepares for the first round-the-world flight by a plane producing zero emissions. Collaboration across several partners has been a key component to developing the materials and design of Solar Impulse. Innovations like this are vital to SDG 7.2 to increase substantially the share of renewable energy in the global energy mix.

Total Site Heat Integration (THSI) offers potential to increase energy savings and efficiency. THSI is important to industry since it will help the optimisation of steam and water losses in utility systems to efficiently support utilities consumption in process industry. The article explains the use of extended total site problem table algorithm as a systematic numerical approach to calculate the sensible heat to meet the total site utility requirements. The work supports the SDG 12: Ensure Sustainable Consumption and Production Patterns; SDG 9: Industry, innovation and infrastructure for Sustainable Industrilisation; and SDG 7: Affordable and Clean Energy.
