It starts to look like number and alphabet soup! How do you make sense of it all? How do we reconcile all of these disparate resources?
Business-focused Social Responsibility (SR) can be a challenge and our goal is to help organizations get the information they need to integrate SR into their businesses. Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is rapidly evolving and using resources can be confusing. Six Sigma Tools are being adapted as you are reading this, to drive Sustainability. ISO 26000, published in late 2010, is Guidance, not a certification, yet there are certifying bodies offering up ISO 26000 certificates to hang on the wall between ISO 14000 and ISO 14001.
GRI – Global Reporting Initiative – is evolving from G3 to G4.
Organizations that start CSR Initiatives risk the scrutiny of Greenwashing Watchdogs. It might seem safer to maintain business as usual.
Now is not the time to get discouraged over the confusion and conflicting information!
“This is the best and most important time to get involved, with sustainability reporting becoming a vital part of business strategies.” — Mike Wallace, Director - GRI’s Focal Point USA: January 31st 2011 NYSE Meeting
