What is ISO 26000:2010 –Guidance on Social Responsibility?

ISO 26000 provides guidance that organizations can follow to promote engagement in socially responsible behaviours. Global organizations are being inspired to build their social responsibility strategies on ISO 26000. This means acting in an ethical and transparent way that contributes to the health and welfare of society.


ISO 26000:2010 provides guidance rather than requirements, so it cannot be certified to, unlike some other well-known ISO 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.


Why ISO 26000:2010 is important?


ISO 26000 Certification is intended to assist organizations in contributing to sustainable development. It is intended to encourage them to go beyond legal compliance, recognizing that compliance with law is a fundamental duty of any organization and an essential part of their social responsibility. It is intended to promote common understanding in the field of social responsibility, and to complement other instruments and initiatives for social responsibility, not to replace them.
