AccountAbility Releases Arabic Translation of the AA1000 AccountAbility Principles (AA1000AP, 2018)
Riyadh / Dubai, April 15, 2019 – AccountAbility has released the Arabic translation of its latest sustainability management framework and guidance document – the AccountAbility Principles (AA1000AP, 2018). The AA1000AP (2018) serves as the foundation of the AA1000 Series of Standards, and offers an informed update to the firm’s internationally accepted, principles-based approach to sustainability management for the 21st century.
The AA1000AP (2018) is the first of the Standards to be translated to Arabic – a timely and relevant development, as Arabic-speaking markets align to global sustainability management requirements and practices.
The AA1000 Series of Standards have been successfully translated to Spanish, Portuguese, and Mandarin in prior years.
The Arabic translation extends the accessibility of the AA1000AP (2018), which organizations large and small, and across industry sectors, have successfully applied to identify, prioritize and respond to sustainability challenges to improve their overall, long-term performance – for two decades.
“We believe that the Arabic version of the AA1000AP (2018) will play a critical role in extending the accessibility of the AccountAbility Principles in the GCC and the Mid-East, and we hope that it will enable organizations in the region to apply leading practices in their approach to sustainability management,” said Accountability CEO, Mr. Sunny Misser.
Dr. Natasha Matic, Deputy CEO and Chief Strategy Officer of King Khalid Foundation and AA1000 Standards Board member, commented, “There is a lack of quality sustainability resources available in Arabic. I believe the Arabic version of the AA1000AP (2018) is essential for guiding and supporting small and large enterprises in the region in improving their practices and sustainability performance.”
