The Standards Committee’s scope of interest in standardization concerns how technology impacts the world, and how the application of technology can improve the world. The Standards Committee will provide a Committee of experts in the following five pillars of interest:

1. Sustainable Development and Humanitarian Technology
2. Ethics, Human Values, and Technology
3. Technology Benefits for All
4. Societal Impact of Technology
5. Protecting the Planet – Sustainable Technology

The Standards Committee of experts will provide feedback and perspectives on related Standards Project Proposals. This Standards Committee will evaluate criteria of potential standards projects to confirm they are uniquely positioned within the aforementioned five pillars of interest to increase due diligence around areas of transparency, accountability, and positive increase of human wellbeing for the products, services, and systems they encompass.
