About Us

Responsible Management Standard Association (RMSA) is a nonprofit professional organization established for the research, development and education of Responsible Management systems and practices to support the United Nation Global Compact initiative.

The UN Global Compact is the world’s target voluntary corporate responsibility initiative with over 12,000 signatories in 145 countries as the responsible management principle-framework for improving environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues of business organizations.

CR8001 ESG Management Standard® is the world’s first de facto standard developed by RMSA, which specifies the requirements for the Responsible management system of any organizations looking to implement the principles of UN Global Compact.

We provide globally recognized qualifications, training and certification programs for professionals who need to meet the demands of ESG management education and continuing professional development work.

The objective of RMSA is to champion responsible management by developing a new generation of business leaders capable of managing the complex challenges faced by business, society and the environment in today’s global economy.

Responsible management is an integrative approach towards sustainability, ethics and corporate responsibility which creates long-term sustainable value for relevant stakeholders. This implies that strategic and operational management decisions are adopted in a company not solely with the goal of maximizing profit, but also for long-term sustainability and greater good.
