The purpose of the survey is twofold:
 

  1. As the National Standards Body (NSB) in Ireland NSAI publishes all European and international standard developed by CEN, CENELEC, ISO, IEC etc. ISO 26000:2010 is the first international standard published on social responsibility. The standard is up for review and NSAI is interested in getting feedback on this standard and its use in Ireland.
  2. The Irish Government has recently approved a National Plan on Corporate Social Responsibility. As part of this Plan, the Department of Jobs, Enterprise & Innovation (DJEI) in conjunction with other stakeholders is seeking to establish an indicative baseline of CSR activity in Ireland.

The survey, which was developed in conjunction with DEJI, BITCI and WIT, is being carried out to determine a base level for CSR practices in Ireland.  The survey takes between 5-10 minutes to complete and comprises of no more than 25 questions. 
 
The results of this survey will be collated and will be used to impart information on CSR practices in Ireland such as publications, articles and as input into the systematic review of ISO 26000.
