The AccountAbility Institute (AAI) is AccountAbility’s applied research and thought leadership arm. Our mission is to provide business, government agencies and multi-lateral organizations with relevant, insightful and useful research papers, reports and literature.
The AAI combines varied innovative research methodologies and tools, including insights from subject matter leaders and analysis of emerging trends, to help our stakeholders understand and effectively work with the complexity of different issues driving sustainability strategy, governance, performance, reporting and policy development.
We primarily work on research and thought leadership that is commissioned by external organizations, and subsequently not always designed to be available in the public domain. Our rigorous and professional research process develops and tailors a value-based and results-driven solution for individual projects while adhering to the guiding principles of the AAI.
