Around the world, organizations and stakeholders alike are recognizing the need for socially responsible behavior. By enacting socially responsible policies and procedures, organizations can contribute to sustainable development.
ISO 26000 is designed to support organizations achieve sustainable development.
Organizations are encouraged to see their corporate social responsibilities as more than mere legal compliance, and ISO 26000 serves as a bridge for implementing actionable policies and procedures in-line with socially responsible and sustainable practices.
ISO 26000 is the result of a 10-year long international collaborative effort designed to innovate standards for corporate sustainable development.
Aimed at forming consensus based on a multi-stakeholder participatory approach, ISO 26000 offers guidelines for a common understanding of social responsibility, to be applied together with other certifications and standards for management systems like ISO 9001, ISO 14001, etc.
This checklist is designed to run an internal performance assessment on your organization, to assess the implementation of guidelines outlined in ISO 26000.
This checklist is designed as a supplement, and is not intended to replace ISO 26000.
For best results, users are encouraged to edit the checklist and modify the contents to best suit their use cases, as it cannot provide specific guidance on the particular risks and controls applicable to every situation.
Typically, CSR performance assessments will require custom checklists that reflect the specific scope, scale, and objectives of the organization being assessed.
