////////////////////// The 9 challenges of the NSDS 1/ Sustainable consumption and production 2/ Knowledge society 3/ Governance 4/ Climate change and energies 5/ Sustainable transport and mobility 6/ Conservation and sustainable management of natural resources and biodiversity  7/ Public health, risks prevention and management 8/ Demography, immigration and social inclusion 9/ International challenges for sustainable development and global poverty The objectives in figures For each of its nine challenges the NSDS provides a reminder of some of the objectives in figures. These objectives are the commitments made by France at a national, European or international level. The performance indicators Four indicators reflecting the economic and social context, fifteen headline indicators and thirty-five background indicators were selected to help mea-sure the impact of the NSDS. They were all chosen collaboratively with the actors concerned. The action of each company has an impact on the ten- dencies of these indicators. When you register your action in the framework of the NSDS, you contribute to the progress of these indicators and to meeting the objectives of the NSDS. Certain indicators have particular relevance for companies, such as the senior employment rate, the number of women in  governance, or research and development.
