BSI is delighted to announce that this year’s theme for World Standards Day on 14th October focuses on ‘Protecting the Planet with Standards'.
Without a doubt, the natural environment is our most precious asset. Recognizing its value is more crucial now than ever before: the stress that humans have placed upon the biosphere through excessive demand and exploitation of natural resource is significant, and in some cases, irreversible. It is our responsibility to protect and restore our natural environment, leaving it in a better state for future generations.
As we move towards a low-carbon and climate-resilient society, standards will help organizations to adapt, transform, communicate sustainability performance and better allocate resources. Climate change is fast becoming a business reality through carbon taxes, procurement practice, supply chain risks and extreme weather events.
We all have a role to play in protecting and restoring our natural environment and together we can make a significant impact.
