How do you earn the label?
LUCIE 26000 is the gold standard CSR label. It offers your stakeholders a guarantee that you will implement a 4-year action plan to become more committed and responsible.
LUCIE 26000 is a turnkey process. It includes the following steps:
Join the LUCIE Community
Want to become a recognized contributor to the transition? Ready to boost your commitment to society and the environment? Start your labeling process by contacting the Agence LUCIE team.
You will join the LUCIE Community, a group of close to 1,200 committed and responsible organizations that enjoy a wide range of benefits.
Since its creation, LUCIE has been developing resources to make CSR and ISO 26000 accessible to all organizations. That’s why all label applicants are required to complete the training course “Steering your ISO 26000 CSR Strategy with the LUCIE Label”.
At the end of the training, you will have all the tools and knowledge you need to implement a CSR action plan designed to address your priority concerns.
Agence LUCIE has its own CSR training center. It is a Qualiopi-certified training provider so you can have your training funded by your training operator (OPCO).
Self-audit and preparation
You will use the methods covered during training and the LUCIE tools to perform a self-audit of your organization covering all seven ISO 26000 CSR themes.
The self-audit will give you an opportunity to prepare for the CSR auditor’s visit to your organization and to identify avenues for improvement that you can include in your 4-year action plan.
You can opt for a supported self-audit to complete this step with the assistance of LUCIE experts.
External on-site audit and 4-year CSR action plan
Your strategy will then be analyzed in detail by a CSR auditor from Bureau Veritas Certification, RSEVAL, Baker Tilly or, for training organizations only, CertUp Maïeutika.
The on-site audit is performed by a CSR expert and includes interviews with numerous internal and external stakeholders.
And the end of the audit, the CSR auditor will score your CSR policy on a 1000-point scale and make recommendations to help you improve.
Your organization will then develop a CSR plan to implement over 4 years so it can take social and environmental issues into account in its activity more effectively and do more to contribute to the SDGs.
Earn the LUCIE 26000 label
To earn the LUCIE 26000 label, your organization must follow the regulations and obtain a score of over 500/1000 on its CSR strategy audit.
An independent labeling committee will then study the proposed CSR action plan and the audit report. It will determine whether or not to award the label. This approach ensures that the label is fully independent and credible.
Implement your CSR commitment over time
The LUCIE 26000 label is not an end in itself. It demonstrates your commitment to progress on CSR.
If you receive the label, auditors from Agence LUCIE, Bureau Veritas Certification, RSEVAL, Baker Tilly, or CertUp Maïeutika will perform a follow-up audit 2 years later to review the implementation of your CSR commitments. After 4 years, you will start a new labeling cycle to continue to grow your positive impact.
