Civil society and social auditing

Business Ethics 10 (1):40–44 (2001)
‘Social auditing’ is everywhere. An increasing number of companies – and also public and voluntary sector organisations – are trying to assess their social performance systematically. Shell, BP and General Motors are among them. How are they doing it? What impact do NGOs and civil society organisations have on this process? Do they have a privileged place in social audits? This article looks at these questions, and sets out a framework for understanding social audits and civil society. Examples are drawn particularly from the recent Camelot social audit . Camelot plc is the operator of the UK national lottery
