Invertek attains ISO 26000 as part of its commitment to CSR

07 November 2023

Invertek, a variable frequency drives manufacturer, has attained ISO 26000 which it will use as a best practice framework for its corporate social responsibility (CSR) which outlines seven key principles that are viewed as the roots of socially responsible behaviour.

The standard will continue to be assessed by independent auditors as with the company’s other business management systems.
“As a company, we have a responsibility to our people, community, and the wider environment. These include seven guiding principles that are accountability, transparency, ethical behaviour, respect for stakeholder interests, respect for the rule of law, respect for international norms of behaviour, and respect for human rights,” said Stephanie Walton, Compliance Manager at Invertek. “ISO 26000 is not only an endorsement of that commitment, it demonstrates how we are undertaking that work as part of our core values, as well as being inherently the right approach for our sustainable business and our reputation of being a responsible organisation.”
According to the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), ISO 26000 provides guidance to those who recognise that respect for society and environment is a critical success factor. As well as being the ‘right thing’ to do, application of ISO 26000 is increasingly viewed as a way of assessing an organisation’s commitment to sustainability and its overall performance.
