Overview to ISO 26000, Guidance on social responsibility

What is Social Responsibility

For businesses and organizations committed to operating in a socially responsible way, there’s ISO 26000.

It provides guidance to those who recognize that respect for society and the environment is a critical success factor. As well as being the “right thing” to do, the application of ISO 26000 is increasingly viewed as a way of assessing an organization’s commitment to sustainability and its overall performance.

What are the benefits for my business

The ISO 26000 provides guidance rather than requirements, so it cannot be certified, unlike some other well-known ISO management system standards. Instead, it helps clarify what social responsibility is, helps businesses and organizations translate principles into effective actions and shares best practices relating to social responsibility, globally. It is aimed at all types of organizations regardless of their activity, size or location.
