What are standards developers and users doing today to address sustainability and climate change? There is a technological transformation underway that inspires pioneering opportunities and encourages evolutionary innovation. Global standards leverage these advancements using the application of ethical design criteria for products and services and take into consideration the need to consider today’s challenges in support of a globally sustainable and resilient future. In short, they provide a way forward in sustainable development.

This panel will cover how technological innovations and the application of ethical design principles based on recognized international standards and best practices can be used to address the challenges being faced by stakeholders as they look to implement policies and recommend approaches that support a sustainable and resilient environment to meet the SDGs and address the climate change agenda.

The workshop will focus on best practices and standards for addressing sustainability, environmental stewardship, and climate change challenges through a pragmatic lens – bringing in IEEE standard P7800™ for Addressing Sustainability, Environmental Stewardship and Climate Change Challenges in Professional Practice, and IEEE P7010.1™ on Environmental Social Governance (ESG) and Social Development Goal (SDG) Action Implementation and Advancing Corporate Social Responsibility, as the framework for an open and interactive discussion. It will include a focus on how stakeholders can leverage and use resources and communities to help hasten the achievement of the SDGs in an environment when more than ever breakthroughs on collaboration, collective action, communication, governance, and business model reforms are needed to be aligned with technologically sound solutions and innovations that can be adopted and practically deployed.
