ISO 26000 is the new guidance standard that defines the concept of social responsibility for all kinds of organisations. It helps companies and others address their social, environmental and governance strategies. It helps in the process of building social responsibility into long term strategic plans and achieving meaningful impacts. The standard lays out principles, issues and tools that can help an organisation address its responsibility to society and the environment and contribute to development that will meet the needs of present and future generations.

ISO 26000 can seem daunting, based on seven principles, 36 subject areas and 107 pages! Yet this event will demonstrate how the standard can be used for all types of organizations, of all sizes.

The inaugural CSR Asia Forum on ISO 26000 is a one-day event structured to provide delegates with practical tools, expert insights and workshops on how to implement a responsible management strategy using ISO 26000. It will examine case studies of best practice that are already emerging. The forum will bring together over 100 delegates for a day of thought-provoking panel discussions and workshops concerning the future of social responsibility.

The Forum will help delegates master ISO 26000 by:
  • Featuring insights from a preeminent CSR expert in Europe, Pierre Hupperts, who has already assisted nine companies in applying ISO 26000 to their sustainability management systems
  • Providing case studies and examples from companies that have pioneered ISO 26000 implementation in Asia
  • Offering practical workshops which provide tools and advice on how to develop a sustainability action plan using ISO 26000
