ABAC® will join organisations around the world to celebrate World Accreditation Day (#WAD2022) on June 9, 2022

Established by the International Accreditation Forum (IAF) and the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC), World Accreditation Day is a global initiative to promote the value of accreditation. And this year’s (2022) theme is “Accreditation: Sustainability in Economic Growth and the Environment”, which focuses on how accreditation supports the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15.

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are 17 SDGs goals, which are an urgent call for action by all countries – developed and developing – in a global partnership. They recognise that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth while tackling climate change and preserving our oceans and forests.

A joint statement released by the Chairs of IAF and ILAC introduces the importance of accreditation in supporting the implementation of the SDGs. This year ILAC and IAF have developed some social media cards for the different SDGs addressed in this year’s theme. Members are encouraged to use these on their own social media and can apply their own logos, imagery and/or text.
