CSR Asia Weekly: CSR Asia Summit Roundup

HIGHLIGHT

Registration open for CSR Asia Forum on ISO 26000

ISO 26000 is the new guidance standard that defines the concept of social responsibility for all kinds of organisations. It helps companies and others address their social, environmental and governance strategies, but it can also seem daunting, based on seven principles, 36 subject areas and 107 pages!

The inaugural CSR Asia Forum on ISO 26000 is a one-day event structured to provide delegates with practical tools, expert insights and workshops on how to implement a responsible management strategy using ISO 26000.

The Forum will feature insights from a preeminent CSR expert in Europe, Pierre Hupperts, who has already assisted nine companies in applying ISO 26000 to their sustainability management systems.
