The Distrikt is an entrepreneurship project that is focused to create an attractive investment environment. We are creating this environment by meeting all the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). It is simple, investment in SDGs is an investment for the future and the sustainable development of our communities is our own interest. On the other hand, SDGs create many business opportunities and room for innovations – from solutions to clean energy to providing alternatives to traditional agriculture.
Therefore, we have adopted SGDs as a core pillar of our business model and have set an ambitious goal – to become the 1st fully SDG compliant neighborhood in the world. Discover how we contribute to each SDG.

The story behind
The SDGs build on decades of work by countries and the UN and are build on Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Between 2000 and 2015, MDGs provided an important development framework and achieved success in a number of areas such as reducing poverty and improving health and education in developing countries. SDGs succeed the MDGs, expanding the challenges that must be addressed to eliminate poverty and embracing a wide range of inter-connected topics across the economic, social and environmental dimensions of sustainable development.
