New standard for social responsibility

Written by Haydn Davis

GEISONEVA - The International Organisation for Standardization (ISO) has developed a new voluntary global guidance standard based on social responsibility.

The standard, which was officially launched on 1 November in Geneva, was created with the support of a diverse group of industry experts across a number of countries and stakeholder groups. One of those groups, Ecologica, officially unveiled the handbook for Version One of the ISO 26000 standard at the recent Textiles Exchange conference in New York.
