Every year on 14 October, the three leading global standards development organizations - IEC, ISO and ITU, celebrate World Standards Day. It is an opportunity to increase awareness about the importance of standardization and recognize the commitment of the thousands of experts who contribute to international standardization.

This year, the theme for World Standards Day, A Shared Vision for a Better World, focuses on the important contribution of international standards to help achieve the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

International standards developed by IEC, ISO, and ITU are based on international consensus and collaboration. They empower nations with real-world solutions to address the targets set out in the UN SDGs. Developed by thousands of experts from all over the world, they embody global know-how and cooperation.

As notes Philippe Metzger, IEC Secretary General and CEO, "IEC Standards and Conformity Assessment Systems have an impact on all 17 SDGs and make an essential contribution to ensuring a safer, cleaner and more sustainable future. As encapsulated in our new Strategic Plan and demonstrated through our work, we have made decarbonization and an all-electric society a priority. We are providing the tools and framework that will allow policy objectives, such as net-zero, that are defined by the United Nations and national governments to be reached."
