The standard contains specific requirements for organizations for achieving sustainable development goals. It should be emphasized that each organization must determine its priority goals from the 17 SDGs, taking into account the specifics of its activities, as well as national characteristics and geographical location.

This standard is intended for popularizing the concept of sustainable development and for assisting in the development and implementation of activities by organizations to achieve sustainable development goals.

Since, at present, in many fields of activity for implementing these goals have not yet reached the necessary pace and scale, the purpose of development of this standard is to involve representatives of business communities and entrepreneurs in the development and implementation of measures to achieve the SDGs, popularize the concept of sustainable development.

The implementation of the sustainable development goals increases the social, economic and environmental responsibility of the SIC International Certification System, its members and society as a whole.
