WHAT IS ISO 26000 ?

ISO terms “Social Responsibility”(SR) as responsibility of an organization for the impacts of its decisions and activities on society and the environment, through transparent and ethical behaviour that:

— contributes to sustainable development, including health and the welfare of society;

— takes into account the expectations of stakeholders;

— is in compliance with applicable law and consistent with international norms of behaviour; and

— is integrated throughout the organization and practised in its relationships

This International Standard is intended for all types of organizations in the private, public and non-profit sectors, whether large or small, and whether operating in developed or developing countries.

  1. (WHY) – Seven SR Principles

Clause 4 of ISO 26000 defines the seven fundamental SR principles that an organization should take into account when integrating social responsibility. These form the ethical principles and are as follows:

  1. Accountability
  2. Transparency
  3. Ethical behaviour
  4. Respect for stakeholder interests
  5. Respect for the rule of law
  6. Respect for international norms of behaviour
  7. Respect for human rights
  8. (WHO) – Recognizing SR, engaging stakeholders, sphere of influence

According to ISO 26000, an organization’s recognition of SR and engagement of stakeholders are two fundamental aspects of SR. Recognizing SR means identifying the impact of a company’s own decisions and activities and those of other organizations in the chain and scope. An organization should also be aware of this impact on the interests and needs of its stakeholders. Identifying and engaging stakeholders are, therefore, of central importance when organizations want to implement SR. This is explained in Clause 5 of the practical guide

  1. (WHAT) – Seven core subjects and 37 SR issues

ISO 26000 recognizes seven SR core subjects. These are described in Clause 6 of the practical guide. The seven core subjects are :

  1. Organizational governance
  2. Human rights
  3. Labour practices
  4. The environment
  5. Fair operating practices
  6. Consumer issues
  7. Community involvement and development

All seven core subjects are relevant for every organization. Not all SR issues have to be relevant for every organization.

  1. (HOW) – Integration of SR throughout the whole organization and sphere of influence

ISO 26000 addresses the integration of SR in an organization. This includes guidance related to:

  • understanding the social responsibility of an organization,
  • integrating social responsibility throughout an organization,
  • communication related to social responsibility,
  • improving the credibility of an organization regarding social responsibility,
  • reviewing progress and improving performance
  • evaluating voluntary initiatives for social responsibility.
