Assessment of Social Responsibility Status

Build a socially responsible, future-ready organisation

Build a socially responsible, future-ready organisation

Every decision and action taken by an organisation has an economic, environmental, and societal impact. To build an ethical and transparent culture among stakeholders, every decision must consider their diverse expectations. Operational processes should also integrate environmental, social, and governance (ESG) considerations to align with the organisation’s social responsibility strategy.


Currently, multiple social responsibility codes of conduct, standards, and related sustainability frameworks help organisations to develop a robust value system and a principles-based approach to doing business across their supply chain. This includes initiatives from international institutions like the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), International Labour Organization (ILO), Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), and UN Global Compact.


TÜV SÜD identifies and reviews relevant business operations, covering key stakeholders across the value chain, while following a comprehensive and structured approach to social responsibility. We evaluate an organisation’s entire performance in critical areas by using a wide variety of indicators.


Organisations can use our assessment report to identify possible ethical and transparent systems, as well as adopt a suitable plan of action to advance health and wellbeing within the community.
