Scope

Standardization in the field of Sustainable Cities and Communities will include the development of requirements, frameworks, guidance and supporting techniques and tools related to the achievement of sustainable development considering smartness and resilience, to help all Cities and Communities and their interested parties in both rural and urban areas become more sustainable.

Note: TC 268 will contribute to the UN Sustainable Development Goals through its standardization work.

The proposed series of International Standards will encourage the development and implementation of holistic and integrated approaches to sustainable development and sustainability.
