The Organisation for Responsible Businesses has worked with Anglia Ruskin University in order to obtain validation for both the content of The Responsible Business Standard and the processes involved in carrying out the audit.
The Standard is an auditable certification designed specifically for SMEs. It was felt essential a third party validation was obtained to enhance the value of The Standard for all stakeholders including businesses taking The Standard; the supply chain; procurement departments; and the consumer.
We are delighted that this project has been successful: The Standard was validated on 31st March 2011 by Anglia Ruskin University. An Executive Summary and Detailed Report are available below:
