ISO 26000 Self Declaration

Benefit from this ISO 26000 Self Assessment – in conjunction with stakeholder engagement – to produce a transparent and integrated Self Declaration on (C)SR

ISO 26000 Self Declaration, a (national) standard

The Dutch Mirror Committee ISO 26000 has developed together with National Standard Body Royal NEN a practical tool to enlarge the credibility of organizations that are properly using ISO 26000 to integrate social responsibility.

The result is a national code of practice called: “Guidance on self declaration ISO 26000”, with number: NEN NPR 9026.

The development and pilot testing took 1,5 year and Hans Kröder was a main author of this code of practice.

Example of Self Declaration

The assessment consists of 40 guiding questions subdivided into the four main elements of ISO 26000:

  • (C)SR principles
  • Stakeholders (identification and engagement)
  • (C)SR core subjects and issues (relevance, significance, priority, actions and results)
  • Implementation of (C)SR throughout the organization.

In Annexes, three templates are provided for:

  • statement of application by CEO or Leadership
  • reporting of the review: answers to the questions, evidence and practical examples
  • a matrix on prioritization of core subjects and 37 issues (relevance, significance and priority).
