Social Responsibility

ISO 26000 for Social Responsibility 


In 2010, ISO will formally release ISO 26000, the Standard for Social Responsibility. ISO 26000 is intended for use by organizations of all types, in both public and private sectors, in both developed and developing countries, to assist them in operating in a socially respon­sible manner.

We have a draft of the Standard and are ready to assist companies or agencies looking to begin implementation of the Standard.


Unlike ISO 9001, ISO 14001, etc., ISO 26000 contains guidelines, not requirements, and therefore will not be for use as a certification standard. Companies can, however internally audit departments, divisions and processes for compliance with the Standard, and identify and resolve problems using a similar formalized corrective and preventive action process as is found in the better-known ISO Standards. Those familiar with any ISO Standard should find common ground to relate to the intent and implementation procedures of ISO 26000. And businesses looking for that edge in a consumer market where the public is more socially conscious, will embrace the ISO 26000 Standard as a mean of demonstrating responsible and accountable business practices. .

ISO 26000 is a progressive move to improve customer perception of company-wide practices through providing products and services with a commitment to socially responsible practices, without jeopardizing the environment, exploiting labor, fraudulent accounting, etc. The goal is operating an organization in a manner that addresses the wants and needs of customers, consumers, governments, associa­tions and the public at large. Far-sighted organizational leaders will recognize that lasting success is built on credible business practices and the prevention of activities that negatively impact public perception.

In this age of BCCI, Daiwa, Enron, Sumitomo, Credit Lyonnais, Haliburton, WorldCom, Parmalat, Bear Sterns, etc., where public mis-trust of corporate America is at an all time high, it behooves the public to pressure big business to operate reasonably and responsively to the community, the environment, etc., and demonstrate a committment to same by the adoption of the formalized Standard for social responsibility, ISO 26000.
