This year's theme, Standards for Sustainable Development Goals, couldn't have come at a better time, when we urgently need to accelerate our joint collaborative efforts in achieving the sustainable development goals.
International standards are a key ingredient and catalyst for achieving the sustainable development goals in a multitude of ways.
Standards provide guidance to all types of organizations, irrespective of their size, scope, or geographical location on implementing, integrating and promoting socially responsible behavior throughout the organization and through its policies and practices, within their wider spheres of influence.
