ISO 26000 Foundation Training​ Course Overview

ISO 26000 is an international standard that provides guidance and establishes the principles of social responsibility. It helps the organisation to meet its social obligations in light of its societal, cultural, environmental, and economic development circumstances. It enables individuals to help in identifying and involving stakeholders as well as enhancing the reliability of social responsibility reports and claims. This training course will help the delegates to manage their organisation with accountability, report credibility, and enhance their performance in the market operations. Holding these effective skills and knowledge of ISO 26000 helps individuals to get expertise in achieving social responsibility behaviour and successfully kick start their careers in multinational enterprises.

In this 1-day ISO 26000 Foundation Training course, delegates will gain in-depth knowledge about social responsibility programs and guide organisations to operate in a socially responsible way. During this training, delegates will learn social responsibility strategies and how to integrate social responsibility behaviour within your organisation. They will also learn the approaches, methods and techniques used by organisations to contribute to sustainable development. Our experienced instructor with years of experience in providing interactive training courses will teach this course.

Course Objectives:

  • To provide practical guidance to make social responsibility operational
