"Sustainable development consists of three pillars: economic development, social inclusion and the protection of the environment. There are 17 Sustainable Development Goals, divided into 169 more precise objectives. CEN and CENELEC, on their part, have identified five strategic priorities. One of them highlights their support to the SDGs. “CEN and CENELEC aim at providing support to the actors involved in standardization by offering them guides and examples of best practices. We will identify the topics which bring the most significant contributions to the SDGs”, says Andrea Nam. “The European Union counts on the publication of new standards on sustainable development, which will help implement its Green Deal”".
