“I have made sustainable development my number one priority”

“We need to invent a new model – a model that offers growth and social inclusion – a model that is more respectful of the planet’s finite resources. That is why I have made sustainable development my number one priority.”

Ban Ki-moon, United Nations Secretary General.
