Join us for the ACCSR's 4th Annual Conference and find out:
• What issues and practices the new ISO standard will cover
• What value it can add to your organisation
• How it will relate to existing ISO standards and other CSR instruments i.e. the GRI and the UN Global Compact
• What the implications for stakeholders and the environment will be.
Attended by over 200 leaders in business, government, civil society and academia, ACCSR’s Annual Conference has rapidly become recognised as a leading event in the Australian social responsibility events calendar, providing thought leadership by addressing the key issues and trends in corporate social responsibility. This conference will feature three international speakers and five experts who have been central to the development of the new global standard on corporate responsibility -ISO 26000 – due to be released in 2010. Responsible business practices can help address the stakeholder and ethical issues that have eroded trust in business during the Global Financial Crisis. CSR survived the Global Financial Crisis, proving that ‘business as usual’ is no longer viable and the ISO 26000 has the potential to reshape the CSR landscape.
