Sustainability and well-being

Health, well-being and sustainability are closely interconnected: according to the Sustainable Development Goal no. 3 of the United Nations "Ensuring health and well-being for all at all ages" it is essential to protect our planet to ensure global prosperity, promoting healthy life and socio-economic development based on the sustainable use of environmental resources.

The Italian National Institute of Health (ISS) is committed to achieving the goal for 2030 of reducing a third of premature mortality from environmental causes, through studies and research on environmental risk factors for primary prevention, in a perspective of environmental sustainability and circular economy.
