ISO 26000 – Performance Assessment – Social Responsibility

Every organization needs to instigate actions aimed at making the world a better place. An ISO 26000 performance assessment from SGS measures your organization’s performance and improvement in socially responsible behavior. There are five levels that relate to increasing degrees of performance.

Businesses that neglect to incorporate socially responsible behavior into their strategies, systems and practices are likely to fall behind their competitors. Increasingly customers, staff, stakeholders, investors, business partners, governments and communities are deciding not to support companies that care little for the planet and the well-being of the people in it.

Our performance assessment is suitable for all organizations in both public and private sectors, in developed and developing countries, as well as in economies in transition. It works as a tool to identify your organization’s performance level at the time of the assessment. It will help you operate in the socially responsible manner that society increasingly demands.

Ideally your organization will first be assessed in the early stages of setting an agenda in social responsibility. Following that, it is best applied as a continuous assessment method, against which to set organizational targets.

Improving the level of your performance in adopting the principles of ISO 26000 Guidance on Social Responsibility clearly demonstrates the positive actions taken by your organization to contribute towards sustainable development.

Manage today’s issues and prepare for tomorrow with an ISO 26000 performance assessment from SGS. Recognized as the global benchmark for quality and integrity, our global network of experts speak the language and understand the culture of your local market.
