All of Little Sun’s work is embedded in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) framework. This group of 17 goals was created in order to tackle inequality, improve health and education access, stimulate economic growth, and address climate change.

Our solar energy initiatives particularly address SDG 7: “Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all.” Our work also advances: SDG 1 (No Poverty), SDG 3 (Health), SDG 4 (Education), SDG 8 (Economic Growth) and SDG 13 (Climate Action).
