ISO 26000 provides guidance that organizations can follow to promote engagement in socially responsible behaviors. Global organizations are being inspired to build their social responsibility strategies on ISO 26000.

If you want existing and potential customers, stakeholders and employees to understand your organization’s activities and be able to benchmark its achievements, the ISO 26000 Standard guidance on social responsibility should be your guide.

We can help your organization to utilize the ISO 26000 Standard to realize the benefits of socially responsible behavior. We can offer a gap analysis or a full assessment of your approach to the guidance contained in the standard to help you identify areas of improvement. We also offer awareness training to support you in fully understanding how you can embed the standard in your organization.

ISO 26000 is intended for use by organizations of all types, in both public and private sectors, in developed and developing countries. It will help you operate in the socially responsible manner that society demands.

Sustainable business for organizations means not only providing products and services that satisfy the customer, and doing so without jeopardizing the environment, but also operating in a socially responsible manner.
