UN Sustainable Development Goals

The 2030 Agenda for UN Sustainable Development, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), an urgent call for action. They recognize strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth, while tackling poverty and climate change.

Leveraging Stratasys’ position as a market-leading 3D printing polymer solutions provider, we identified four SDGs that are directly connected to our ability to make a significant impact.

Quality education goal

Quality Education

What it means for Stratasys: As a company powered by the possibilities of innovation, Stratasys is committed to ensuring inclusive and equitable quality education and learning opportunities for everyone. Education is the key to creating better society, technology and life. Equitable and accessible education must be prioritized to foster diverse perspectives and engender innovation across all sectors. This means ensuring that everyone has the literacy and relevant technical skills for rewarding careers. 

What we are doing: Stratasys both markets solutions to educators and advocates for them. We are partnering and working with local municipalities to integrate additive manufacturing into the everyday lives of children's education and pedagogy. By doing so, we are ensuring that every student, regardless of background or gender, has the opportunity to participate in the future.


Industry, innovation, and infrastructure goal

Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure

What it means for Stratasys: Industrialization is a net positive for economies around the world, creating jobs and wealth. The same is true when it comes to information and communications technology, research innovation, and support for entrepreneurship. 

What we are doing: Stratasys aims to have additive manufacturing benefit people worldwide. We will do it by enabling designers, engineers and manufacturers with local, on-demand capabilities that empower companies and organizations of all sizes to improve quality of life everywhere.


Responsible, consumption, and production goal

Responsible Consumption and Production

What it means for Stratasys: The world continues to use natural resources unsustainably. Ensuring sustainable consumption and production patterns includes the environmentally sound management of chemical waste, the disposal of waste, and the efficient use of production materials.

What we are doing: Additive manufacturing, accompanied by greater utilization of recycled and renewable materials, can be a more efficient production method. Stratasys is committed to innovation in reduced waste, reused materials, and recycled packaging.


Climate action goal

Climate Action

What it means for Stratasys: Climate change continues to exacerbate the frequency and severity of natural disasters, even as global warming grows and too little is being done to move toward net-zero carbon emissions. These targets will be easier to achieve by reducing the movement of product parts around the world, and by using more efficient, digital manufacturing methods, among other steps. 

What we are doing: Stratasys is committed not only to reducing our own carbon footprint, but also to making it easier for our customers to do so as well.
