The world is facing a crisis: poverty, hunger, inequality and climate change are just some of the issues we need to address.
In 2015, world leaders came together to create 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) which aim to tackle these issues, to build a better world by 2030.
What you may not be aware of is the fact that ISO Standards play a big part in the journey towards a better future. Many commonly used ISO Standards already meet certain goals, with more in development.
Today, Mel explains what the SDG’s are, and how businesses can align themselves with the SDG’s with related ISO standards.
- The 17 sustainable development goals set by the UN.
- How to align your business with the SDG’s.
- How the SDG’s affect our day-to-day lives.
- The ISO standards that can help you meet the SDG’s.
- Details of the first 9 SDG’s and the ISO standards that relate to them.
