CAN/CSA-ISO 26000:16 - Guidance on social responsibility (Adopted ISO 26000:2010, first edition, 2010-11-01)
Many organizations face the challenge of effectively demonstrating to their stakeholders how they are operating their businesses in a responsible fashion.
ISO 26000 - Guidance on Social Responsibility provides guidance on how organizations can operate in a socially responsible way that contributes to sustainable development, including the health and welfare of society. The standard offers recommendations on how to structure, evaluate, and improve social responsibility, including stakeholder relationships and community impacts. ISO 26000 also provides organizations with a set of societal expectations of what constitutes responsible behaviour, based on authoritative international instruments and best practices.
CAN/CSA ISO 26000 is the Canadian-adopted version of the international standard and has been vetted by Canadian stakeholders and deemed appropriate for the Canadian marketplace. The adoption of ISO 26000 as a National Standard of Canada is an important milestone, indicating that Canadian social responsibility experts agree that the standard is appropriate and beneficial for use by organizations across Canada.
