New version of SGE 21 Standard from Forética


Forética has recently launched a new version of its SGE 21 Standard, an Ethical and Socially Responsible Management System for companies and organisations.


SGE 21 is Forética’s proprietary standard, and the first European standard that since the year 2000 has allowed organisations to implement, audit and certify an ethical and socially responsible management system.


“Organisations must take a strategic approach to Social Responsibility if they are to address the challenges posed by social, environmental and good governance issues. To do so, these challenges must be grounded in their processes, and they must establish objectives and targets that are realistic and achievable, with well-defined indicators and a system of governance that can verify compliance and on-going improvement. SGE 21 is a great tool for assisting this process,” explained Germán Granda, Managing Director of Forética.


Main new features of SGE 21 


Forética has worked to update the SGE 21 Standard to ensure it remains in line with the most demanding standards agreed at an international level. It has done this by incorporating the approach to social responsibility and sustainability of standards such as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises, the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and the ISO 26000 guidance standard, which recognises the SGE 21 as a management tool in Annex A.
