Corporate Social Responsibility: ISO 26000
ISO 26000 is the first guideline on social responsibility from the International Standards Organization (ISO), and is set to become the new global benchmark for corporate social responsibility.
Companies that are serious about sustainability have already started aligning their sustainability policies, strategies, and initiatives with ISO 26000.
ISO 26000 provides a practical framework for formulating and implementing effective corporate social responsibility policies. Companies can use the framework to identify material issues, engage with stakeholders and boost credibility of their sustainability reports.
