The European Commission, which has long embraced sustainable development, is committed to mainstreaming the 2030 Agenda, its goals and an targets across all its policies and programmes. This is laid out in the 2016 Communication Next steps for a sustainable European future - European action for sustainability.

Ongoing and future efforts are discussed in the 2019 Reflection Paper towards a Sustainable Europe by 2030. Moreover, in the Political Guidelines of the Commission 2019-2024, President von der Leyen attributes a central role to the 2030 Agenda and its SDGs, making sustainable development the keystone of European policies so that Europe can lead the Green and Digital transitions. The role of SDGs is also highlighted in the 2020 Commission Staff Working Document "Delivering on the UN's SDGs - A comprehensive approach".

The successful implementation of this framework requires a coordinated and coherent approach, for which structured knowledge management tools are needed.
