Board of Experts

The CSR Performance Ladder would like to stay in contact with stakeholders in terms of corporate social responsibility. To this end, the CSR Performance Ladder formed a Board of Experts. The members of this board, who supervise the execution of the standard and adjust it if necessary, work for organizations that focus on human rights, peace, safety and environment (NGOs) or government. We strive for a balanced distribution of all stakeholders in the formation of the Board of Experts.

The board's task is to inform certification institutes on using CSR Performance Ladder. Topics that could be discussed:

  • The content of the standard (what can be improved, what needs to be different, what is unclear, which evolving insight is developing, etc.)
  • What requirements are set to certification institutes and their auditors?
  • How is the standard tested and how can you ensure that it actually takes place?
  • How can you ensure that the certificate is clear and distinctive towards the outside world.
