challenges of implementation of international sr iso 26000
Challenges of Implementation of International SR ISO 26000
  • If the international standard on SR is to become a truly global force

(there is a need to rationalize and align ISO 26000 with robust and universally recognized Declarations/Conventions, inter-alia, human rights, labour rights, environmental protection, and anti-corruption).

  • A defensive approach if the SR practices are not tailored national economic social structures (No imposition through international supply chain & investment).
  • If the current multi-stakeholders approach failed to yield consensus

(Government etc.) - social legitimacy.

perspective on implementation iso 26000
Perspective on implementation ISO26000
  • Strengthen capacity building process in emerging markets/developing societies.
  • Enhance organizations’ contributions towards socio-economic development.
  • Manage globalization’s new risks/opportunities- inclusive opportunity for organizations and other stakeholders located in developing countries
  • Southern stakeholders are now participating in ISO 26000 Process in order to embrace the SR agenda - North vs South issues
  • Enhancement of national competitiveness by stimulating SR performance
  • Make societies and markets more sustainable and equitable (PPP).
