World Metrology Day 2024 14.05.2024 - This year, World Metrology Day on the 20th of May is dedicated to sustainability.

We Measure Today for a Sustainable Tomorrow

Sustainability affects many different areas of metrology and is crucial for European strategies such as the European Green Deal and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

“This year, the theme for World Metrology Day is sustainability. Accurate measurements are the basis of environmental research and policymaking because they enable us to understand and tackle complex environmental challenges such as climate change, pollution, and resource depletion. The theme of sustainability encourages us to explore how metrology contributes to improving our lives every day. For example, accurate and reliable measurements enable better monitoring of environmental parameters, better assessment of the impact of human activities, and the development of strategies that promote ecological balance. Metrology empowers us to make informed decisions, whether by quantifying carbon emissions, measuring waste, or monitoring natural habitats.”
