Our vision is of a world where people have a say in the decisions that have an impact on them, and where organisations act on and are transparent about the issues that matter.

At the core of our work is the AA1000 Series of Standards based on the principles of:

  • Inclusivity - people should have a say in the decisions that impact on them

  • Materiality - decision makers should identify and be clear about the issues that matter

  • Responsiveness - organizations should be transparent about their actions
