ISO 26000 Guidance on Social Responsibility

ISO 26000 outlines international recommendations for making your organisation more socially responsible. It will guide you in building and delivering a long-term corporate social responsibility (csr) strategy, whatever the nature of your business. ISO 26000 can help you address everything from working practices to environmental policies, sustainable development and the communities that you impact.  


What is csr?

Social responsibility has become one of the most important factors to measure your organisation’s performance and this is true of all sectors of society. What is csr? Corporate social responsibility is an organisation’s legal and voluntary duty to consider its social and environmental impact of its decisions and activities. A corporate responsibility strategy outlines the ways that an organisation contributes to sustainable development, engages with its stakeholders and behaves ethically.

Why BSI?

The food industry impacts every person on the planet. Though what the world's population may eat may differ depending on the geography, wealth, age, gender and availability of goods, no other sector plays such a vital role in all of our day-today lives and culture. Economically, food represents 10% of global GDP (valued at US$48 trillion by the World Bank).

But the food sector also faces significant challenges. Each year, food-borne illness makes one in ten people ill and is the cause of death for millions around the world. Population growth projections and an increasing middle class suggest that the demand for food will increase 70% by 2050. And, consumers are increasingly conscious about what goes into their food, how it's made, its impact on ecosystems and where it comes from.

BSI believes the world deserves food that is safe, sustainable and socially responsible. We support the food sector by developing and publishing standards of best practice, supply chain solutions as well as training and certification to not only the most popular food safety standards, but other business improvement standards that work together to make organizations more resilient.
