The SDGs Initiative at Tecnológico de Monterrey was established in 2019, when Tec began working with government authorities, national and regional schools, researchers, teachers, and students on concrete solutions to achieve the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) in Mexico and around the world. The Initiative is aligned with the Institution’s 2030 Strategic Plan, based on supporting the implementation of the UN’s 2030 Agenda and its 17 SDGs at the local and national level. It aims to identify and promote the activities that Tec de Monterrey carries out in favor of sustainable development, while identifying new areas where the Institution can contribute with innovative projects and ideas for the implementation of the SDGs. The Initiative has five action areas, which are carried out in collaborative multi-sectorial alliances: Education, Research, Public policies, Public-private partnerships, and Co-coordination of SDSN Mexico with UNAM.
