Presentation: IEC and SDGs February 2020 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.


Presentation: IEC work for Smart Cities

This slide provides an overview of IEC work for cities. The IEC provides the majority of the International Standards needed to safely interconnect and automate much of the city infrastructure that generates or uses electricity and contains electronics.
