2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is the concretization of a continuous effort between states and other stakeholders in order to transform the world. In the process of negotiations that has taken several years, United States, exercising global leadership, have played an active role. They have been willing to cooperate with the global community by drafting a plan on the future of sustainable development. The most important thing is that this prominent actor of the international order will continue to play a crucial role in ensuring the success of this Agenda. Therefore, the purpose of this paper is to introduce the concrete steps taken by U.S. government for sustainable development in the context of global challenges of this century. By understanding the position and responsibility as the most powerful country of the international system, with the capacity to produce public goods, the United States are working in close partnership with countries and communities of the world, to avoid negative climate changes, to solve environmental problems and to modernize the global cooperation. Besides these issues, the intention of this paper is to make clear the U.S projects regarding the global health, food security, gender equality, education, open government and apparent conflicts. The above-mentioned are the focus of 2030 Agenda and constitute the main lines of this paper. Based on literature, documentation review and reports of the White House, United States Agency for International Development (USAID), US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) etc., we conclude that even the U.S, a global leader, cannot achieve alone the 2030 Agenda goals, which are really ambitious. In order to achieve successfully the sustainability development goals it’s necessary to work in partnership with other stakeholders, including governments, international institutions, communities around the world, private sector, research institutes and common citizens. The challenges of this century are forcing America to use power not over the others but with others because these goals are designed to work together.
