Social responsibility

Social responsibility is the concept that requires organizations to involve actively in the life of local communities, assume their social obligations and develop a coo-operation with the society.

There is a global growing pressure for a responsible behaviour of companies and their involvement in the welfare of local communities is becoming a performance indicator.


RIGCERT provides social responsibility audit and certification services to help you demonstrate your commitment to the sustainable development of the society.

Social responsibility certification

To demonstrate social responsibly the company has to operate in an ethical and transparent manner and contribute to the well-being of the society. The general aim is to obtain the trust of stakeholders, improve social relations, reduce noncompliance risks and in the long term increase profits and improve image and reputation.

There is a number of standards and certification schemes regarding social responsibility like ISO 26000 (that is not meant for certification purposes as it states clearly here) or SA 8000 (a private certification scheme developed by Social Accountability International).

Most of the social responsibility certification schemes, though address a number of common elements like: work practices, prevention of child labor and forced labor, protecting the health and safety of employees, preventing discrimination, respecting social and cultural rights of employees, involvement in environmental protection or promoting fair commercial practices.

RIGCERT has developed a system for evaluating the implementation of social responsibility principles  integrated into a management system.
