AFAQ 26000 Assessment

AFAQ 26000
Corporate Social Responsibility: where does your organisation stand?


Companies and organisations are being increasingly required to contribute towards sustainable development. Their performance must be based on three pillars: financial, social and environmental. This contribution from organisations is set out in ISO 26000, the first international standard to offer guidelines for Corporate Social Responsibility, published on 1st November 2010. AFNOR Certification proposes the AFAQ 26000 assessment to help organizations assess the relevance and level of maturity of their practices under ISO 26000.
