Each year, the Standards Council of Canada (SCC) joins the international community in celebrating the importance of standards-related activities and pays tribute to the collaborative efforts of the thousands of individuals that give their time and expertise to this important work.
This year’s World Standards Day (WSD) theme is our shared vision for a better world.
This focus is part of a multi-year campaign to showcase the importance of international standards to achieving the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The SDGs present a blueprint to ending poverty and tackling climate change to create a more inclusive and sustainable world by 2030.
SCC is proud of the Canadian standardization network’s collective actions to tackle climate change and its impacts (SDG 13).
As the invisible infrastructure that safeguards the products, processes and services we rely on, standards offer solutions to today’s most pressing environmental, societal and economic issues. Thousands of ISO and IEC standards make a direct contribution to each of the 17 SDGs.
