ISO 26000 - Social responsibility


International Organization for Standardization

Business and organizations do not operate in a vacuum. Their relationship to


the society and environment in which they operate is a critical factor in their
ability to continue to operate effectively. It is also increasingly being used as
a measure of their overall performance.
ISO 26000 provides guidance on how businesses and organizations can
operate in a socially responsible way. This means acting in an ethical and
transparent way that contributes to the health and welfare of society.

ISO 26000:2010
ISO 26000:2010 provides guidance rather than requirements,so
it cannot be certified to unlike some other well-known ISO
standards. Instead, it helps clarify what social responsibility is,
helps businesses and organizations translate principles into
effective actions and shares best practices relating to social
responsibility, globally. It is aimed at all types of organizations
regardless of their activity, size or location.

"Sustainability may be described as our


responsibility to proceed in a way that will
sustain life that will allow our children,
grandchildren and great-grandchildren to live
comfortably in a friendly, clean, and healthy
world . that people:
Take responsibility for life in all its forms as well as
respect human work and aspirations;

SUSTAINABILITY

Respect individual rights and community responsibilities;


Recognize social, environmental, economic, and political
systems to be inter-dependent;
Weigh costs and benefits of decisions fully, including
long-term costs and benefits to future generations;
Acknowledge that resources are finite and that there are
limits to growth;
Assume control of their destinies;
Recognize that our ability to see the needs of the future
is limited, and any attempt to define sustainability should
remain as open and flexible as possible."

SIX DIFFERENCES
BETWEEN CSR AND
SUSTAINABILITY
VISION
CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY LOOKS BACKWARDS, REPORTING
ON WHAT A BUSINESS HAS DONE, TYPICALLY IN THE LAST 12 MONTHS, TO
MAKE A CONTRIBUTION TO SOCIETY
SUSTAINABILITY LOOKS FORWARD, PLANNING THE CHANGES A BUSINESS
MIGHT MAKE TO SECURE ITS FUTURE (REDUCING WASTE, ASSURING SUPPLY
CHAINS, DEVELOPING NEW MARKETS, BUILDING ITS BRAND)

TARGETS/OBJECTIVES
CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY TENDS TO TARGET OPINION
FORMERS-POLITICIAN, PRESSURE GROUPS, MEDIA
SUSTAINABILITY TARGETS THE WHOLE VALUE CHAIN, FROM SUPPLIERS TO
OPERATIONS, TO PARTNERS, TO END-CONSUMERS

BUSINESS
CORPORATE SOCIAL REPONSIBILITY IS BECOMING ABOUT COMPLIANCE

SUSTAINABILITY IS ABOUT BUSINESS

MANAGEMENT
CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY GETS MANAGED BY
COMUNICATIONS TEAMS
SUSTAINABILITY BY OPERATIONS AND MARKETING

REWARD
CORPORATE SOCCIAL RESPONSIBILITY INVESTMENT IS REWARDED BY
POLITICIANS
SUSTAINABILITY INVESTMENT IS REWARDED BY THE COMMUNITY
