Sustainable Development Charter

Sustainable development charter logo
We will use our Sustainable Development Charter to encourage and enable organisations in Wales to become more sustainable.

The Charter:

  • Sets out our vision of a sustainable Wales;
  • Links the central organising principle to the pursuit of the long-term wellbeing of people and communities in Wales;
  • Describes the benefits making Sustainable Development your organisation’s central organising principle;
  • Sets out the commitment that you are making by signing up; and
  • Explains the next steps we will take to support Charter.

The Sustainable Development Charter and the Well-being of Future Generations Act

With the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act now in force the Charter is under review to make sure it is aligned to this new legislation. Until that review is complete, we aren’t accepting new signatories. You can join the Sustainable Development Charter LinkedIn Group (external link) and find news on the Sustainable Development Charter website (external link), or follow the Charter on Twitter (external link).

See the guidance for public bodies which are under the duties in the Act.
