In 2022, the UK faces a range of economic challenges – notably inflation and the cost of living crisis. This evolving context overshadows some of the detailed analysis of strategies and policies below. The central pillars of SDG 8, though – economic growth that is environmentally sustainable and inclusive, secure employment, and decent work – remain fundamental. Sustainable economic growth and an inclusive work environment are necessary precursors for resolving any economic issues.

The UK has marked a few notable achievements under SDG 8, however, it will take far more work than is currently being delivered to achieve the Targets by 2030.
This report also comes at a time when the UK economy is still trying to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, which has posed several challenges in the progression of the SDG8 Targets.
