Management Based on ISO 26000:2010
Since MYTCL began to enhance its focus on CSR reporting from 2013, we have worked to promote CSR management and proper disclosure of information through activities such as hearing stakeholder's various concerns, and also specifying material issues for the Myanmar Yang Tse Copper Limited organisation.
Through the ongoing development of the PR & CSD Department, we have commenced the creation of a Community engaged department that will hold key priorities in aligning our reporting with the seven core subjects of the ISO 26000 International Standard.
ISO 26000:2010 provides guidance rather than requirements, so it cannot be certified as some other well-known ISO standards. Instead, it helps clarify what social responsibility is, helps MYTCL translate principles into effective actions and shares best practices relating to social responsibility, globally.
The standard was launched in 2010 following five years of negotiations between many different stakeholders across the world. Representatives from governments, NGOs, industry, consumer groups and labour organisations around the world were involved in its development, which means it represents an international consensus.
By 2018 we will also launch further initiatives to integrate ISO 26000 into our overall management practices. We are currently evaluating the status of our activities in line with the seven core subjects outlined within the standard, and strive to confirm and establish medium-term key performance indicators (KPIs), and to disclose the results of these evaluations in the annual Sustainability Reports.
