Sustainability at scale: Setting a global standard for sustainable cities

Stage 4 (Upper level)
21/06/2024, 13:30 - 15:00

How can standards scale sustainable urban development at the regional, national and global level? We’ll delve into how these powerful tools can foster climate-neutral, resilient cities that respect our planet’s limits. We’ll explore how standards can be the catalyst for incorporating innovative, green, and digital solutions at the speed and scale needed to meet pressing global sustainability challenges.

Whether you’re from the private sector, an investor, academia or an urban planner, you’ll find valuable insights into systematic solution uptake. The session will launch discussions on how ICLEI and ISO – the International Organization for Standardization, which brings global experts together to agree on the best way of doing things – can shape the future of urban sustainability.
