Contribution of iso standards to the un sustainable development goals

ISO has issued more than 22,000 international standards and related documents that are globally recognized guidelines and frameworks based on international collaboration. Based on consensus, they provide a solid foundation for innovation and are important tools to help governments, industry and consumers contribute to the achievement of all SDGs.

Regulators can rely on ISO standards as a sound basis for establishing public order that contributes to the achievement of SDG objectives such as human rights, water and energy efficiency, public health and more. International standards are globally recognized and support governments in fulfilling their national and international obligations.

While the contribution to SDGs is high on the agenda of business leaders and politicians, many of the benefits are felt at the local level. Reduced poverty, improved health, clean and abundant water and safe and protected infrastructure are just some of the benefits of implementing ISO standards.
