ISO 55000 and UN Goals: Driving Sustainable Development Through Strategic Asset Management

As we move forward in an age where sustainability is a practical necessity, the collaboration between Asset Performance Management (APM) and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) offers a golden opportunity for industries to transform their asset management strategies. The APM LEADCon 2024 conference is set to be the ignition point for this transformation, and with insights from the ISO TC251’s briefing, we recognize that “Good Asset Management is a key enabler for organizations seeking to contribute to the achievement of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).” Let’s explore how ISO 55000 integrates with the SDGs to lead organizations towards sustainable asset management.

The Strategic Role of ISO 55000 in Sustainable Development

ISO 55000 serves as a foundational framework for asset management, aiming to integrate business objectives with the maintenance of asset reliability and availability. It is a blueprint for organizations to transition good intentions into actionable realities in sustainability, addressing goals such as reducing emissions and conserving resources. As Figure 1 from the ISO TC251 briefing illustrates the alignment of UN Sustainable Goals and Asset Management Principles.

ISO 55000’s Direct Impact on Sustainable Development Goals

Effective Asset Management inherently contributes to seven of the SDG. By managing expenditures and activities for both immediate and future impacts, Asset Management bolsters an organization’s sustainable operations and performance. It reflects a commitment to social responsibility and ethical practices, enhancing the capacity to cut emissions, save resources, and respond to climate change. By improving processes and asset performance, Asset Management also heightens efficiency and effectiveness, aligning with the CSR goals and the outcomes of various SDGs such as:

  • UN SDG 6: Clean Water and Sanitation
  • UN SDG 7: Affordable and Clean Energy
  • UN SDG 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth
  • UN SDG 9: Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure
  • UN SDG 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities
  • UN SDG 12: Responsible Consumption and Production
  • UN SDG 13: Climate Action
The Synergy Between ISO 55000 and SDGs at APM LEADCon 2024

The APM LEADCon 2024 is where the strategic frameworks of APM and ISO 55000 meet the actionable goals of the SDGs. It is a platform for stakeholders to learn how the fundamental principles of Asset Management enable the successful attainment of CSR objectives and sustainable development outcomes.

Natural Alignment for a Sustainable Future

The core principles of good Asset Management naturally align with the aspirations of the UN’s SDGs. This alignment is not just theoretical; it extends to the practical implementation through an Asset Management System. Integrating CSR objectives with other strategic organizational goals, Asset Management becomes a powerful method of embedding sustainability and social responsibility into an organization’s priorities and everyday activities.

A Unified Approach at APM LEADCon 2024

APM LEADCon 2024 will showcase how organizations can utilize ISO 55000 to bring about positive changes that resonate with the global sustainability agenda, effectively turning strategy into practice. The conference will highlight how the fundamentals of Asset Management enable success in achieving sustainable development goals.
