The upholding of fundamental human rights is essential for the survival and well-being of humanity, as emphasised by the fundamental principle of ISO 26000. Initially, corporations were encouraged to practise social responsibility (SR) willingly, without any legal requirement. However, this approach was shown to be inadequate for ensuring global sustainability and the preservation of human rights. This book chapter examines the relationship between human rights and sustainable development goals (SDGs) within the framework of a socially responsible society. It emphasises the importance of organisations integrating human rights points of view, in accordance with the 2030 sustainable development agenda. The research emphasises the urgent requirement for a forward-thinking and environmentally-friendly society dedicated to social responsibility in order to ensure the survival of humanity. This conclusion is based on a thorough examination of several documents, including academic literature and influential worldwide publications such as COP27.
