Every year on 14 October, IEEE Standards Association (IEEE SA) joins the international community in celebrating the importance of standards development and honoring the collaboration of individuals and organizations across the globe who drive technological innovation.
Our theme for this year’s celebration is “Raising the World’s Standards for the Protection of the Planet.” Over the last century, large-scale industrial activities, rapid population growth, urbanization, and inequality have negatively impacted the earth, our lives, and the well-being of future generations. The concept of sustainable development has become more important than ever, and global standards play a key role in supporting the environmental, social, and economic sustainability of our planet and human society.
