ISO 26000 – IQNet SR10 Corporate Social Responsibility

The public is increasingly demanding corporations and organizations fulfill their obligations for social accountability, and improve the impact their activities and decisions have on the environment and society as a whole.  More and more, the public is paying attention to the manner in which organizations handle their responsibility as corporate citizens. Consumers and buyers require ethical behavior and transparent management.

In order to meet the growing need for an internationally accepted standard, IQNet developed specification IQNet SR 10, which was published in December 2011.  It is based on the Spanish specification RS 10 developed by AENOR and on ISO 26000 Among other factors, the particular strength of this IQNet standard lies in it being eminently suited to integration into an existing management system (thanks to IQNet’s more than 20 years of certification experience), as well as its international acceptance.

In April 2015, IQNet released the second version of the standard, IQNet SR10:2015.
