Why This Is Important
The United Nations is seen as a bureaucratic non functioning organization.
ISO 26000 Guidance Standard was developed with a view that all organizations and institutions would use the same standard. Those using the standard correctly (selecting relevant issues, identifying contribution to society, open stakeholder dialogue) would receive support from the community.
Unfortunately the UN, and others have endorsed "green washing", 'bluewashing" and "redwashing" corporations. The ISO 26000 Standard used correctly will minimize its misuse by organizations of their pretending to do good processes and will give civil society a traceable indication. ISO 26000 is the Golden Rule if correctly used by all organizations, businesses, institutions, governments, NGOs and all other organisations.
