Parallel Session A4:
Quality and the UN Sustainable Development Goals – Supporting a sustainable development
In September 2015, 193 member countries of the United Nations adopted 17 Sustainable Development Goals, SDGs. These SGDs are now the platform for the global sustainable development. It is now time for quality management to support the sustainable development and improvements in life and future prospects of everyone with the global vision of “No One Left Behind”. A more holistic view on quality needs to be developed further and given a much bigger impact at the highest level. It must become the basis for defining strategy, targets and investments and quality principles and tools need to be introduced in the political and social world.
