It’s time to build a better, fairer, more inclusive and sustainable world, so it can be enjoyed by generations to come. To achieve this, we must work together.Together with our partners around the planet we’re celebrating World Standards Day and the entire standards system, which is built on collaboration. In a world where differences too often divide us and obstruct progress, we stand for dialogue, building consensus, and making sure that every voice is heard.
In addition to fostering a collaborative and inclusive environment, standards themselves provide practical solutions to real world problems, like those at the heart of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The SDGs offer a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet. They cover many areas and, in almost all cases, there’s a role for standards.
Achieving the SDGs will require the cooperation of many public and private partners, and the use of all available tools to disseminate best practice, including international standards and conformity assessment.
That’s why the Department of Trade and Industry’s Bureau of Philippine Standards (DTI-BPS) is using World Standards Day to accelerate collective global action through standards. Find out more at www.WorldStandardsDay.org.
