The high level multi-stakeholder platform on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) supports and advises the European Commission on the implementation of SDGs. It allows the CoR to build a common language with all other stakeholders and propose recommendations for a sustainable EU. The input of the CoR is coordinated by the ECON Commission.
