17 goals for transforming the world
Technical standards are a tool for helping achieve the SDG. The standards are based on collaboration and consensus. They provide organisations with practical guidelines, establish measurable and traceable criteria, provide tools for verifying compliance, and connect production/service delivery with consumption/the customer.
In 2015, the UN approved the
Agenda 2030 on Sustainable Development, an opportunity for countries and their societies to take a new path to improve the lives of everyone, without leaving anybody behind. The defence of the environment or the design of our cities.
How do standards help fulfil the SDG?
The 17 Sustainable Development Goals comprising Agenda 2030 aim for countries and societies to embark on a path towards improving the lives of everyone. Organisations with a vocation for leadership are directing their strategies towards achieving these objectives.
In the current scenario, where alliances and collaborations encouraged by the objectives themselves represent a key element, standardisation makes it easier for organisations to deploy actions in line with Agenda 2030, through a broad catalogue of current documents, as well as others that are being delevoped.

Energy, and particularly electricity, is found in most of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). The work of the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) has a direct impact on 12 of the 17 SDG. It provides the technical foundation for the entire energy chain and all electrically powered equipment.
The UN's Global Compact pursues two main goals: To incorporate the 10 Principles into business activities across the globe; and to channel action that supports the UN's broadest objectives, including the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).
