CSR is a self-regulated business model that helps businesses become more socially accountable. A company that practices CSR means they are conscious of the impact their operation has on societal, political, economic or environmental issues outside of their business. Engaging in CSR essentially means your business is proactively contributing to factors that affect wider society in a positive way.
CSR can encompass a wide variety of actions and obligations, but the important thing to remember is that the benefits don’t just flow one way. While it does a lot of good for the community, CSR also significantly benefits businesses to help forge a stronger bond between employee and employer. CSR can also boost morale and can help both employees and employers feel more connected with the world around them.
In 2010, the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) released a set of voluntary standards meant to help companies implement corporate social responsibility. Unlike other ISO standards, ISO 26000 provides guidance rather than requirements because the nature of CSR is more qualitative than quantitative, and its standards cannot be certified. Instead, ISO 26000 clarifies what social responsibility is and helps organizations translate CSR principles into effective actions. The standard is aimed at all types of organizations regardless of their activity, size, or location. And, because many key stakeholders from around the world contributed to developing ISO 26000, this standard represents an international consensus.
