SI 10000 – Guidance on Social Responsibility of Organizations


פקד תמונה שמאלי


Social Responsibility is the fashion in which an organization implements social, environmental, economic and ethical considerations in its path to achieve success and long-term existence. In modern times, Social Responsibility is an important factor in organizational and business success.

In the race for success, in recent years, basic ethical, humane and social values were abandoned. Today, many organizations place these values as managerial top priority. In the global world, organizations find themselves bound to prove to others, that they operate though principles of Social Responsibility, this so that they can take part in the supply chain of those bodies. Additionally, there are export restrictions to countries that have stringent laws and regulations on various issues related to social responsibility.

The standard for social responsibility, SI 10000, applies a systematic approach to social responsibility. It is written in a way that will be applicable for organizations of any size or field, and can contain or be combined with other management systems such as: quality management systems, environmental management systems, financial management systems, an Occupational Health and Safety management system and work-relationships management system. The social responsibility management system must be an integral part of all of the management systems that the organization uses in an ongoing basis. The concept that the standard is based on is that there is a mutual dependency between the social performance of the organization and its financial performance.


The path to attestation

Attestation is done after implementation of an intra-organizational process, in which the Social Responsibility system, per the standard requirements, is successfully implemented. In order to start the process, it is recommended to purchase the standard at the Standards Institution information center, to learn the requirements and to participate in appropriate training. Additionally, consultants that specialize in Social Responsibility can be used, and the Standards Institution of Israel can conduct a preliminary audit to review the GAPS.
The process should be seen as an opportunity for improvement by a team from the organization that will receive support and involvement of management. At the end of the process, auditors of the Standards Institution of Israel that are independent will perform the attestation audit that confirms that the organization’s solial responsibilty condult is appropriate.
