09th June 2022 marks World Accreditation Day 2022, a global initiative established by IAF (International Accreditation Forum) and ILAC (International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation) to promote the value of accreditation. This year’s theme for the accreditation day is: “Sustainability in Economic Growth and the Environment”.
The world economy relies heavily on natural resources provided by healthy ecosystems, and yet the human intervention continues to put these ecosystems through enormous stress and to consume resources at an alarming rate.
Accreditation, alongside with other quality infrastructure tools including metrology, standardization, conformity assessment and market surveillance, can support the shift of world economy to a circular one and more sustainable forms of production. Use of standards can help Enterprises adopt more eco-friendly practices, with accredited conformity assessment, providing assurance to the market that requirements and specifications are fulfilled.
For more than 25 years, TÜV AUSTRIA HELLAS is being actively supporting sustainability with actions and energies for the creation of a more sustainable future.
