World Accreditation Day

WAD THEME 2022

World Accreditation Day 2022,  will have the theme of Accreditation: Sustainability in Economic Growth and the Environment.  Increasing challenges due to climate change, environmental degradation and biodiversity loss, societies have become increasingly aware of the importance of viewing economic growth through the lens of sustainability.  Accreditation is a valuable tool to help regulators, companies, and consumers require or engage in more environmentally friendly practices. The fight against climate change and the transition to a circular economy, which emphasizes quality, reuse, recycling, remanufacturing and waste management to conserve resources and limit waste, are two of the main themes that IAF and ILAC will explore in 2022.
