Putting SDGs into practice with standards
To make our world a livable place again, the United Nations developed 17 sustainable development goals: the so-called Sustainable Development Goals, or SDGs.
This ambitious action plan to promote peace and prosperity, fight poverty and protect the planet by 2030 is essential for the sustainable development of our world.
But truly changing the world is a difficult task. It requires the commitment of all levels of our society: governments, the business world, and citizens. Fortunately, standards are a useful tool in helping us achieve these 17 goals.
