ISO 26000

– probably the best social responsibility standard in the world –


An International Standard that contains recommendations on how to contribute to sustainable environmental, social and economic development – for all companies and organisations, everywhere?

ISO 26000:2010 Guidance on Social Responsbility was developed by 450 experts from 99 countries and 40 international organisations during 5 years. ln 2010, after handling more than 25 000 written comments, the standard was published in consensus. More than 80 countries have adopted ISO 26000 as a national standard and made it available to the national market. 20 more countries are in progress.
