SDG World Records ( documents and celebrates superlative achievements that are the best in the world. Record breaking is a serious business, which means there are strict policies governing what constitutes a record in order to maintain these high standards. Here is an overview of the considerations at the heart of any record assessment.


Each record must fulfil all of the following criteria. They must be:

• Linked with one of the SDG – Is it related to a sustainable development goal target?

• Meaningful for moving SDG forward – Has anyone else done better?

   If a record suggestion is new then SDG World Records will set a challenging minimum requirement for challengers to beat.

• Specific – What do you want to do for SDG?

• Measurable – How will you know when you’ve reached it?

• Breakable – Can the record be broken?

• One variable per breaking – Focus on one breaking variable

   (if more than one, please submit two or more applications) 


In order for us to verify your achievement we require a number of pieces of evidence, this will vary depending on the record category you are applying.



SDG World Records does not endorse:

• Violation of the Sustainable Development Goals and their values.

• Unsuitable activities or those which could cause potential harm or danger to spectators.
