In a statement, Zahid Mubarik CEO of HR Metrics and Founder President SHRM Forum Pakistan said Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) project to address social imbalances, develop a sustainable economy, and slow the rate of climate change, are highly ambitious. To reach them will require the cooperation of many public and private partners, and the use of all available tools, including international standards and conformity assessment, he said.? He further added that the intense battle against a persistent global pandemic revealed the absolute necessity of addressing the SDGs in an inclusive way, to strengthen our societies, making them more resilient and more equitable. It is testament to the power of cooperation and the belief that the sum of whole is greater than parts. It is in this spirit that we are engaging in a multi-year World Standards Day journey that showcases the many ways in which international standards contribute to the success of the SDGs. World is united to work together to accelerate the 2030 Agenda, with standards for the SDGs, and shared vision for a better world.
