MANAGING WITH SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

ISO 26000

Do you want to commit to your organization’s social responsibility? You can, with the ISO 26000 guidance standard. Use it to align your management system with globally recognized CSR standards. 

The guidance standard, which is not intended for certification, covers more than just management mechanisms. Its scope also includes values, thought patterns and behaviors – criteria that matter more and more to interested parties. 

  • Sustainability Management
  • Social Responsibility
  • Fundamental CSR Principles
  • Interested Parties

The non-certifiable international ISO 26000 standard provides guidance and instructions for aligning your management system with corporate social responsibility (CSR) programs and sustainability standards. It summarizes key principles, practices, subjects and issues in social responsibility and highlights requirements for a variety of interested parties such as customers, investors, governments or associations. When implemented effectively, CSR enables fair work practices, responsible resource use and reasonable terms along the supply chain. 

  • Strong commitment to assuming social responsibility
  • Transparency in key issues for a socially responsible management system
  • Deeper understanding of your stakeholders and their expectations
  • Good basis for expansion with certifiable standards

We support you by conducting professional system analysis onsite in which we identify significant issues in your organization’s processes. Our assessments will leave you better prepared to handle future requirements (risk management or proactive stakeholder engagement). We show you how an existing ISO 9001, ISO 14001 or similar management system can serve as an anchor for your CSR programs, and we identify certifiable CSR standards that can support your organization on its sustainability trajectory.
