Striving towards an equitable, democratic and sustainable society

The European Bureau of Library, Information and Documentation Associations is an independent umbrella association of library, information, documentation and archive associations and institutions in Europe.

SDG13 - oriented projects and Best Practices

Freedom of expression is a sacred principle in libraries; therefore, those who deny climate change may be listened to in libraries, but also have a hard life: climate change has become an emergency also because of them. Awareness activities and campaigns / exhibitions promoting good practices should awaken people’s consciousness and accelerate the attainment of SDG 13. Cooperation between citizens and universities through public libraries would reverse the current consideration that climate emergency is something beside and ahead of us, and not inside of us and now.

One of the most popular standards applied in sustainability is the ISO standard 14001:2004: Environmental management systems — Requirements with guidance for use, a standard that is successfully applied in many aspects of SDGs.

The University Library of Huelva set up an ISO standard compliant system designed to manage processes and procedures related to environmental aspects. It was applied to all library activities and services having an impact on the environment.
