The ISO 26000 guideline provides practical guidance on ways to integrate the social responsibility principles, subjects and issues into existing strategies, systems, practices and processes of a company. The guideline helps organisations to implement their CSR policies.
FrieslandCampina has opted to have its self-declaration verified by an independent external party every three years in order to show that the company applies ISO 26000. The verification is based upon the NPR9026+C1:2012 and provides answers to 40 questions on corporate social responsibility. LRQA (Lloyd’s Register) verifies FrieslandCampina's self-declaration and checks whether this self-declaration is drawn up in conformity with the applicable guideline. FrieslandCampina aims to develop and implement its existing CSR policy using the ISO standard and to actively inform stakeholders.
