The Perception of Brazilians on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Low-Carbon Economy
Keywords:Sustainable development, Low Carbon Economy, Sustainable actions, Global issues
Objective: The objective of this study is to analyze the significance of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in the context of the Low Carbon Economy (LCE) through a quantitative and descriptive approach. The research aims to identify and understand the relationships between the 17 SDGs and their impact on the promotion of sustainable development, particularly in mitigating climate change-related issues.
Method: The research employed a quantitative and descriptive methodology, utilizing a survey conducted in the state of Rio Grande do Sul (RS), Brazil. The survey was designed to gather data from respondents representing civil society, government, and companies in the region. Participants were asked to evaluate the importance and influence of each of the 17 SDGs on the Low Carbon Economy.
Results: The research findings reveal substantial relationships between the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Low Carbon Economy (LCE), as perceived by the respondents. The results indicate that all SDGs play a significant role in influencing the LCE. These findings emphasize the interconnectedness of sustainable development goals and their potential to drive the transition to a Low Carbon Economy.
Conclusions: The study highlights the crucial role of Sustainable Development Goals in promoting a Low Carbon Economy. By fostering the use of renewable energy sources and sustainable practices, the LCE offers a solution to reduce environmental damage and work towards achieving sustainable development.
