Presentation: IEC and SDGs October 2019 icons

All sustainable development goals rely on electricity. Electric power is the golden thread that alleviates poverty and hunger, increases access to healthcare, education, clean water and light after dark. It facilitates daily chores and allows women to contribute differently to local economies, increasing their status. IEC work is behind the scene but essential. It is technology focused and only few IEC Standards can be directly attributed to a single SDG. This presentation outlines where and how the IEC contributes to SDGs. Rather than text, it uses clear icons for faster communication.


Briefing paper: Contributing to Sustainable Development Goals – en

IEC International Standards and IEC Conformity Assessment (CA) Systems contribute to 16 of the 17 SDGs. They provide the foundation that allows all countries and industries to adopt or build sustainable technologies and apply best-practice, and they form the basis for innovation as well as quality and risk management.
