ISO 26000 (CSR Guidance)
What's New in ISO 26000 (CSR Guidance)?
* How material is ISO 26000 Social Responsibility to Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs)? (PDF - 445 kb)
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is an issue that is working its way into many policy debates and corporate agendas. CSR is an evolution in the approach towards sustainable development: while the 1992 Rio Earth Summit focused on environmental management, the 2002 World Summit on Sustainable Development (WSSD) focused on a broader set of issues, including poverty reduction and social development.

As part of its participation in the work of the SAG on CSR, IISD has committed itself to helping other organizations get involved and become aware of the implications of ISO work in this area.

* Recursos e Investigación para el Desarrollo Sustentable (Chile); and the
* African Institute of Corporate Citizenship (South Africa).

* equitable representation of civil society from the South and the North—to include voices of community-based organizations that are often excluded from the development of CSR standards;
* equitable and effective engagement of producers based in developing countries, particularly small and medium-sized enterprises that are so important in the economies of many low- and middle-income countries;
* that any standard should not discriminate against small producers, become a discriminatory barrier to market access or restrict innovation; and
* that a standard must be flexible in its ability to respond to the rapid pace of developments in the CSR agenda more broadly, without locking in a "status quo" that is likely to become quickly outmoded.
Together, and with the support Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs...
