SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT

Rio de Janeiro’s 1992 conference put sustainable development clearly on the political agenda. Twenty years on at the Rio+20 event held in June 2012, the international community met again to discuss these issues and drive progress forward.

Many of ISO’s 19 000 standards can help businesses and organizations all over the world make progress in the three pillars of sustainable development:

  • environment;
  • economy;
  • society.
