The Role of the Corrosion Engineer in Contributing Towards the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were developed in 2015 as a blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate, environmental degradation, prosperity, and peace and justice.  The seventeen SDGs interconnect and a number of the goals are affected by corrosion processes and material choices. This paper aims to address these particular goals by providing examples of how the wise application of material sustainability, material stewardship and corrosion management principles can help improve progress towards meeting the goals. Furthermore, this paper is intended to underline the positive financial benefits to industry and governments when corrosion management practices are properly applied.
