With the ever shifting global markets as well as a need to balance remedies to macro-economic challenges with the urgent call for a meaningful response to climate change.
In this complex environment, international standards can be powerful tools to lead positive change by detailing specifications that can open up global markets, create enabling business environments, spur economic growth and help mitigate and adapt to climate change.
International standards represent the consensus view of the world’s leading experts in industry sectors ranging from energy utilities and energy efficiency to transportation, management systems, climate change, healthcare, safety and information security and communication technology (ICT).
The diversity and opportunities of International Standards will be celebrated on World Standards Day on 14 October 2013.
What are your views and how do you use International Standards to improve your business and the environment?
