The Cabinet Office plays an important role in maximising progress on the Government's priorities, including supporting a coordinated approach to domestic implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Ministers and officials meet regularly with stakeholders across government to support implementation of the SDGs and ensure they are embedded within Government performance and planning. It is not common practice to disclose specific details of inter-Ministerial meetings, and to identify meetings on this subject for all officials in the department would incur disproportionate cost.
