These three management layers are separated into seven management indicators: Policies (POLI), Endorsements (ENDO), Measures (MESU), Certifications (CERT), Coverage – Deployment of Actions (COVE), Reporting (REPO) and 360° Watch Findings (360). POLICIES 1 POLI Policies, objectives, targets, governance 2 ENDO Endorsement of external CSR initiatives and principles (e.g. UN Global Compact) RESULTS 6 REPO Quality of reporting readily available to stakeholders 7 360 Standpoints of stakeholders, e.g. administrative & judicial authorities, trade unions, NGOs ACTIONS 3 MESU Actions implemented (e.g. procedures, training, equipment) 4 CERT Certifications, labels, 3rd party audits 5 COVE Level of deployment of certificates or actions throughout the company When assessing a company's CSR management system, it is important to define what are the CSR issues covered by the management system. The assessment considers a range of CSR issues, which are grouped into four themes. The CSR issues are based on international CSR standards such as the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact, the International Labour Organization (ILO) conventions, the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI)'s standards, the ISO 26000 standard, the CERES Roadmap, and the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, also known as the Ruggie Framework.
