In May 2016, the Government Council agreed on a renewed composition of the grand-ducal regulation regarding composition, organisation and functioning of the Commission for sustainable development with the objective having appropriate organizational structures to ensure the implementation of the goals and targets of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.   The Commission for sustainable development has been created by the law of 25/6/2004 on the coordination of national politics for sustainable development. It is gathering representatives of all ministries. Its main missions are to set up the national plan for sustainable development and the report on the implementation of sustainable development.  

In April 2016, the Council was asked by the Minister for Environment as minister in charge, to advise the Government on the association of Luxembourg’s civil society and private sector in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable de Development.
