For example, DFID is leading the final global push to eradicate polio and help immunise 45 million children against the disease each year until 2020 to help achieve Goal 3 (Healthy Lives).</p><p> </p><p>DFID is also providing a range of support to National Statistics Offices in developing countries to gather, analyse and use data, linked to the SDGs. For example, through the UN Statistics Department, DFID is supporting 20 developing countries to disseminate SDG data through National Reporting Platforms.</p>

star this property answer text <p>HM Treasury supports the wider work of the government on this issue through spending but also sets environmental tax policy, encouraging more sustainable production and consumption.</p><p> </p><p>For example, the Carbon Price Support incentivises investment in renewable energy and has contributed to a rapid decline in the use of coal in power generation. This helps to deliver cleaner energy for manufacturers and consumers. In the construction industry, the Aggregates Levy is shifting demand towards recycled and byproduct building materials and reducing the need to quarry for new materials. Tax is also transforming how we deal with waste. Since the Landfill Tax was introduced in 2000, the amount of waste going to landfill has decreased by 65% in the UK. Recycling has increased from 18% to 44% over the same period.</p><p> </p><p>HM Treasury is now exploring how the tax system or charges could be used to make the production and consumption of single-use plastics more sustainable. The Chancellor further supported this goal by committing £20m to businesses and universities, acting now to stimulate new thinking and rapid solutions in this area.</p>
