International policies and commitments that promote sustainable actions originate from the United Nations and other agreements between nations. The scope of international agreements that are critical to achieving sustainability includes the Paris Climate Accord. But, addressing the limiting carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions is just one of many critical, interrelated facets that must be addressed. International actions are also taking place to address clean water, education, health, hunger and many other factors that comprise global society, economics and the environment.
