The corporate landscape is undergoing a profound transformation, with a heightened focus on social responsibility. Leading the paradigm shift is the IQNET SR10 Social Responsibility Certification introduced by SIRIM QAS International, a division of SIRIM Bhd. This certification stands as a pivotal stride towards fostering sustainable corporate practices, not only allowing businesses to demonstrate their commitment to social responsibility but also unlocking myriad management, commercial, and socio-environmental benefits.

The IQNet SR10 accreditation enables organisations to manifest their commitment to sustainable practices, aligning seamlessly with Malaysia’s commitment to the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) under the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Businesses opting for this certification not only project a positive image but they also position themselves as advocates for sustainability. This accreditation serves as tangible evidence of their commitment, attracting diverse financing sources and facilitating effective resource management.

Navigating Social Responsibility Through IQNET SR10

In a globally competitive environment, adding value to stakeholders – suppliers, customers, employees, and shareholders – is imperative. The Social Responsibility Scheme (SR 10), compliant with international best practices, is endorsed by SIRIM QAS. Spearheaded by SIRIM QAS, a prominent testing, inspection, and certification provider, this initiative equips businesses with the tools needed to navigate the complex terrain of social responsibility.

Unlocking Business Advantages

The IQNET SR10 certification is not only a badge of distinction; it is a strategic move for businesses aiming to thrive in an ethically conscious future. Beyond enhancing organisation legitimacy, this certification cultivates a positive public image, broadens funding opportunities, and streamlines resource management to minimise expenses.  

Embrace CSR practices with IQNET SR10

SIRIM QAS International is the pioneering certification body offering IQNet SR10 Social Responsibility Certification, signifying independent verification of an organisation’s adherence to social responsibility best practices. This verification instils trust among stakeholders and interested parties, enhancing access to funding and investments.

Ms. Wan Shahima Mior Ahmed Shahimi, Head of Management System Certification Department of SIRIM QAS International encourages local businesses to obtain this certification to affirm their position in adopting sustainable practices.

“Upon obtaining the certification, they will not only be reaping various managerial, socio-environmental and commercial benefits, but they will also be maximising business growth and reaching their full potential. Moreover, companies that prioritise green initiatives will be able to enjoy a competitive advantage within the industry,” added Ms. Wan Shahima.

Paving Way for Sustainable Futures

SIRIM QAS International’s commitment to the IQNET SR10 standard reflects its dedication to setting international practices. By launching the Social Responsibility Certification, the organisation aims to inspire businesses to embrace sustainable practices, drive positive change, and contribute to a better future for all stakeholders.

SIRIM QAS International acts as a guiding beacon for companies embarking on their journey towards social responsibility with the IQNET SR10 accreditation, directing them towards accountability, adaptability, and long-term success in an ever-evolving global environment.
