• Which standards contribute to SDG 13 “Climate Action”?

  • https://www.sabeproject.eu/ - The project ‘Engaging more standard bodies and national environmental organizations in the environmental aspects of Standardization’ (ENgage project) enhances the participation and contribution of national CEN members and environmental stakeholders to the environmental strategic discussions, making the most of the experience and expertise of European countries. 
  • The European societal stakeholders’ organisations that are closely involved in the environmental issues within the standardization are the 'Environmental Coalition on Standards' (ECOS), and the 'European Association for the co-ordination of consumer representation in standardisation' (ANEC).
