The SDG 'wedding cake'. Source: Stockholm Resilience Institute The European Commission submitted its sixth reflection paper on Sustainable Europe by 2030 in January 2019. The more ambitious scenario 1 is about "endorsing at the highest EU political level the globally agreed SDGs as the overarching strategic policy objectives for the EU and its Member States.

In Europe's Sustainability Puzzle, the EPSC, the European Commission's internal think-tank, highlights several risks linked to paradoxes embedded in Europe's socioeconomic system and explores possible solutions that are also relevant to climate action.
