ISO Social Responsibility Working Group to Meet in Brazil

Published: Tuesday, February 8, 2005 - 23:00

The first meeting of the ISO group that will develop a standard for social responsibility has been scheduled for March 7–11 in Salvador, Bahia, in Brazil. The chair of the working group is Jorge E.R. Cajazeira, Suzano Group excellence programme corporate manager; and the vice chair is Catarina Munck af Rosenschöld, of the Volvo Car Corp. The secretary is Kristina Sandberg, of SIS Management Systems; and the co-secretary is Eduardo Campos de São Thiago, ABNT coordinator of international relations.

The group will develop a standard that will provide guidance on social responsibility, but it will not be a management system standard or for certification purposes. ISO expects that it will take three years to develop the standard, with publication planned for early 2008.
