Our process and approach  works across departments, regions, and staff and line functions to build clear, measurable goals and objectives that are then coalesced into compelling themes that inspire managers, staff, and stakeholders alike. These are translated into a series of clear policies and programs backed by rigorous performance metrics. We work with clients to advance their strategy into clear implementation road maps that designate staff responsibility, milestones, and processes to move forward.

We work closely with the Board and Executive Management to put in place effective systems of controls and processes to provide oversight and guidance for a responsibly competitive business strategy, assess emerging risks and opportunities, and make appropriate disclosures of performance related to material issues.

 In our work, AccountAbility applies a number of proprietary tools including:
  • The Corporate Responsibility Leading Performance Framework

  • The Materiality Assessment Tool

  • The Responsible Competitiveness Index

  • The AA1000APS Principles of corporate responsibility

  • The AccountAbility Rating

  • The Sustainability Strategies Tool (developed with the International Finance Corporation)

  • The Partnership Governance and Accountability Framework

  • The Stakeholder Engagement Handbook

  • The Stakeholder Assurance Panel Framework

Representative Client Work:

A global software giant has engaged AccountAbility for several activities over the last three years. In particular, AccountAbility conducted a materiality assessment and designed a CSR strategy for the company. This included interviewing over 20 executives and senior managers, interviewing key stakeholder groups, assessing the emerging sustainability issues in the software and ICT industry, as well as benchmarking the company's current strategies and core competencies against competitors. The result was a strategy designed to leverage the company's core competencies, as well as supporting key social and environmental needs.
