SDG 1: End poverty

07/03/2019

​Para el cumplimiento del compromiso de alcanzar las metas previstas en la Agenda 2030, los organismos de normalización han puesto en marcha varias actuaciones, entre ellas identificar qué normas pueden apoyar el cumplimiento de cada uno de los UN Sustainable Development goals (SDG).

The SDG 1 End poverty aims to eradicate poverty in all its forms and dimensions by 2030; this requires focusing on the most vulnerable, increasing access to resources and basic services, and supporting communities affected by conflict and climate-related disasters. Several UNE standards represent elements that will help achieve some of the goals set to end this situation.

For example, the UNE-EN-ISO 9606 series of standards Qualification of soldering irons. Soldeo por fusión se compone de una norma para cada tipo de material de soldeo: steel, aluminium, copper, nickel, and titanium. These standards allow a welder to become qualified, providing access to a job that provides a sustainable livelihood.

Along the same lines, access to reliable electricity is usually the first step in overcoming poverty; for example, making good use of geothermal energy to electrify poorly developed areas where the Earth's accumulated heat can be used as a resource to generate electricity cities. In this context, standards provide access to new technologies and basic services, like electricity and water. The Standard UNE 100715-1 Design, implementation and monitoring of a shallow geothermal facility. Part 1: Vertical closed-circuit systems, which define the installation of geothermal exchange systems for producing heat, refrigeration, and sanitary hot water.
