March 23rd 2010 | by Adrian Henriques ISO 26000 will be a standard for social responsibility produced by the International Standards Organisation (ISO).

Le projet de norme internationale ISO 26000 "Lignes directrices relatives à la responsabilité sociétale des organisations" vient d’être approuvé par les 2 tiers des pays membres de l’ISO qui ont participé au suffrage.
L’Afnor, représentant français de la normalisation à l’ISO, a voté en faveur de ce texte élaboré de manière consensuelle qui donne une définition de la responsabilité sociétale.

Le vote final sur le FDIS se déroulera pendant une période de 2 mois durant l’été 2010, pour une publication en tant que Norme internationale vers la fin 2010.

INNOVATION. Food business incubator. Geisha-Inspired Fashions - Armani Privé Couture 2011 Collection Inspired by Japanese Culture. The Armani Privé Fall 2011 Couture show beautifully paid tribute to the people of Japan who were affected by the tragic earthquake in March.
The collection was a personal one for Giorgio Armani, who has been supporting a UNESCO scholarship program that has been helping children who were harmed by the natural disaster. With Oriental-style prints, origami-inspired folds and pleats in the clothing, the Armani Privé collection's Japanese influence is hard to deny.
