Verify Humanity's Commitment to the SDGs

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a set of 17 interconnected global objectives, serving as a collective blueprint for a brighter and sustainable future. Critically, the SDGs also aim to prioritise the well-being and sustainability of natural environments such as our oceans and landscapes and, by extension, the animals that call them home.

Verify Humanity supports the SDGs and believes that a compassionate world for animals goes hand-in-hand with a sustainable future for humans. While the SDGs are human-centric, many of the key issues tackled contribute towards a better future for animals, too. For example, the SDGs’ focus on environmental sustainability could lead to improved habitats and ecosystems, benefiting a wide range of species. Equally, not exploiting animals contributes towards a sustainable future for humans by helping to mitigate climate change, improve human health, preserve natural resources and reduce environmental degradation. 

That said...

Verify Humanity acknowledge that ending animal exploitation isn't actually one of the official goals, and the goals only benefit animals secondarily, as a 'by-product' of human benefit. 

Therefore, we
 support Beyond Cruelty's campaign to have 'zero animal exploitation' added as an 18th sustainable development goal.

Claire Smith, president of the Beyond Cruelty foundation, states that "the addition of SDG 18 – Zero Animal Exploitation, will accelerate the transition to a compassionate, kinder, cleaner and healthier world for all", and we couldn't agree more!

We're Working Towards a Common Goal of a More Compassionate World

We raise awareness of the connections between human action and animal issues to inspire compassionate collaboration to stop animal exploitation.

Life Below Water 

Oceans and other bodies of water are home to an incredibly diverse range of species. Preserving these habitats directly supports the welfare of countless marine animals, from fish and whales to corals and molluscs. 

The SDG in action: Verify Humanity advocate for the freedom of marine animals. We have published articles arguing against Octopus Factory Farming - inclusive of detailed analysis of how this will negatively impact biodiversity and it's unsustainable nature. We also raise awareness about issues such as the fallacy of sustainable fish, the damaging effects of micro-plastics on sea animals, how shipping routes are killing whales, and much more.
