G7 Standardisation – a strategic instrument for climate action and the global digital energy transition
Online / Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action, Berlin
We currently find ourselves at the beginning of comprehensive digital and green transformations towards an increasingly digital, climate-neutral and sustainable economy and society.
The G7 want to act as pioneers to protect the climate and the environment and to accelerate a digitally enabled sustainable global energy transition.
The German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK) has therefore initiated an exchange of G7 partners and their respective stakeholders on the subject of standardisation in these areas, taking place under the activities of the Digital Ministers’ Track under Germany’s G7 Presidency in 2022.
Building on the virtual Expert Workshop “Strengthening G7 Coordination on Supporting International Standardisation for the Digital and Green Transformations” held on 27 April 2022, BMWK is planning a highlevel Multi-Stakeholder Conference with G7 partners and representatives from governments, industries, standards organisations, academia and civil society on the subject of
“Standardisation – a strategic instrument for climate action and the global digital energy transition”
to be held on 7 September 2022 from 12:00 to 15:30 CEST (UTC+2)
at the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action, Berlin.
The event will take place in a hybrid format.
