Meeting the Standard - ACCSR's 4th Annual Conference
Thursday, 28th January 2010 at 4:29 pm

The Australian Centre for Corporate Social Responsibility (ACCSR) is hosting its 4th Annual Conference in Melbourne in February looking at the post-GFC world of responsible business practice – Meeting the Standard.

Where: RACV Club, 501 Bourke St, Melbourne
When: Friday 19th February 2010 : 9.00am – 5.30pm
 
The practice of social responsibility stands on the brink of the biggest changes since CSR entered management practice in the
1970s. Business leaders the world round are now recognising that there can be no return to ‘business as usual’. But what will the new
‘normal’ look like?
 
CSR survived the Global Financial Crisis. But the GFC’s failure to address stakeholder and ethical issues have taken trust in
business to new lows. In 2010, the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), the world’s leading standards body, will
release a standard on what it means to be a socially responsible organisation.
 
Experts from 91 countries have been working intensively since 2004 to reach consensus on what ‘social responsibility’ means, and
what should go in the world’s first standard on the subject.
 
The new standard has the potential to re-shape the CSR landscape.
 
Find out what the new standard will mean for your organisation and how responsible business practice has emerged from the crisis
sharper and more focused than ever.
 
QUESTIONS THIS CONFERENCE WILL ANSWER:
• What issues and practices will the new ISO standard cover?
• What value could it add?
• How will it relate to existing ISO standards and other CSR
instruments such as the GRI and UN Global Compact?
• What are the implications for stakeholders and the environment?
 
PLUS
Launch of The State of CSR in Australia 2009 Update – the biggest ongoing research program into the changing nature of CSR
practice, including an announcement of the CSRMC Top 25 – the companies and organisations with the best CSR management
capabilities.
