Practical SDG actions

How industry organizations can implement standards into their SDG strategies

Standards can effectively support organizations as they implement plans toward achieving the SDGs:

  • Standards set out requirements, best practices, and guidance to help address various organizational and societal risks and facilitate the deployment of emerging technologies.
  • Standards provide benchmarks that help monitor and report the effectiveness of SDG implementation in a reliable and transparent manner.
  • Proven and demonstratable links between the use of standards and specific SDGs at the target level can help strengthen stakeholders’ confidence in standards as an instrument supporting SDG-related objectives.
