Secretary-General Commends ISO on Social Responsibility Efforts


In a message to the ISO 27th General Assembly in Geneva, UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan has praised the "unique contribution in a range of vital areas" made by the International Organization for Standarization (ISO).

In his statement, the Secretary-General specifically commended "ISO's recent decision to develop a standard on social responsibility - an initiative which dovetails well with the universal principles of the UN Global Compact on human rights, labour conditions, the environment and anti-corruption."
