IQNet SR 10

Social Responsibility Management System

ISO 26000 is an extremely useful guide which sets out the basic principles on which the social responsibility of all organizations must be based.

However, this standard contains no provisions for determining the minimum requirements for the practical implementation of the principles of social responsibility and it cannot be certified by organizations that are prepared to demonstrate compliance with these principles.

IQNet SR 10 is an international specification developed by IQNet Association and its partners which is designed to integrate social responsibility into organizations’ business strategies and communicate achievements obtained through certification.

This tool is extremely useful for organizations wishing to go beyond the “generation of employment and wealth creation” to also develop sustainably, from focusing on the customer to focusing on their stakeholders and interested parties, and from simply designing and implementing social responsibility plans which are independent of other business policies to developing strategies to integrate social responsibility into the overall strategy of their organization.

Several features contribute to the success of IQNet SR 10:

It is based on the principles and directives which are set out in the international recommendations of the ILO, UN and EU, as well as on the general principles of social responsibility, integrating issues of economic-financial management and good governance with environmental and social issues;

It includes the principles, guidelines and recommendations laid down in the International Standard ISO 26000 Guidelines on Social Responsibility;

It is based on the Deming Cycle (PDCA) of continuous improvement, so that it can be complemented and integrated with other management systems;

It is complementary to other initiatives which focus on specific stakeholders and interested parties, such as the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), the Sedex Members Ethical Trade Audit (SMETA), Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI), etc.
