Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the 2030 agenda for sustainable development, was adopted by United Nations Member States in 2015 to ensure peace, prosperity, and sustainability worldwide. Researchers from almost all the fields have been conducting SDGs related studies to contribute to this journey of the globe. For any nation, it is not possible to achieve these goals without its stakeholders' participation like policymakers, researchers, educationists, universities, government agencies, professionals, citizens, civil societies, political leaders, and so on. In this study, HR professionals have been identified as one of the stakeholders of SDGs. This study aims to explore how HR professionals are making their meaningful contributions to achieving SDGs. Secondary data from different sources have been used in this study.
