The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is an independent, non-governmental organization made up of members from the national standards bodies of 164 countries.

ISO members play a vital role in how we operate, meeting once a year for a General Assembly that decides our strategic objectives. ISO Central Secretariat in Geneva, coordinates the system and runs day-to-day operations, overseen by the Secretary General.

ISO standards are international agreed by experts, such as:

  • Quality management standards to help work more efficiently and reduce product failures.
  • Environmental management standards to help reduce environmental impacts, reduce waste and be more sustainable.
  • Health and safety standards to help reduce accidents in the workplace.
  • Energy management standards to help cut energy consumption.
  • Food safety standards to help prevent food from being contaminated.
  • IT security standards to help keep sensitive information secure.

ISO has a number of standards that play an essential role in the climate agenda, helping to monitor climate change, quantify greenhouse gas emissions and promote good practice in environmental management.
