Certification in Sustainability: ISO 26000

ISO 26000 Social Responsibility

What is ISO 26000 Social Responsibility ?

ISO 26000 is defined as the international standard developed to help organizations effectively assess and address social responsibilities that are relevant and significant to their mission and vision; operations and processes; customers, employees, communities, and other stakeholders; and environmental impact.

The ISO 26000 standard provides guidance on:

  • Recognizing social responsibility and engaging stakeholders
  • Ways to integrate socially responsible behavior into the organization
  • The seven key underlying principles of social responsibility:
    • Accountability
    • Transparency
    • Ethical behavior
    • Respect for stakeholder interests
    • Respect for the rule of law
    • Respect for international norms of behavior
    • Respect for human rights
  • The seven core subjects and issues pertaining to social responsibility:

    • Organizational governance
    • Human rights
    • Labor practices
    • The environment
    • Fair operating practices
    • Consumer issues
    • Community involvement and development

Implementation of ISO 26000 Social Responsibility

Organizations in the private, public, and nonprofit sectors, whether large or small, and whether operating in developed or developing countries, use ISO 26000. All of the core subjects of social responsibility are relevant in some way to every organization.

Since the core subjects cover a number of issues, organizations will benefit when they identify which issues are most relevant and significant for them through examination of their own considerations and dialogue with stakeholders.
