A4.3.1.2 Formal Guidance


For organisations seeking a formal approach to CSR, guidance is provided by internationally recognised principles and guidelines, in particular the recently updated OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises, the ten principles of the United Nations Global Compact, the ISO 26000 Guidance Standard on Social Responsibility, the ILO Tri-partite Declaration of Principles Concerning Multinational Enterprises and Social Policy, and the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.

This core set of internationally recognised principles and guidelines represents an evolving and recently strengthened global framework for CSR.
