ISO 26000:2010 - SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

What is ISO 26000:2010 - Social Responsibility?

ISO 26000 outlines international recommendations to make your organization more socially responsible. This will guide you in creating and delivering long-term social responsibility strategies, regardless of the nature of your business. ISO 26000 can help you solve everything from working methods to environmental policies, sustainable development, and the communities you are impacting.

Social Responsibility has become the most important factor in measuring the efficiency of your organization and this is true in all sectors of society. Social responsibility is the legal and voluntary duty of an organization that considers the social and environmental impact of its decisions and actions. Corporate Responsibility Strategy shows an organization the way to engage with its stakeholders, who contribute to sustainable development and to behave ethically.
