Seoul / London, August 13, 2019:
AccountAbility has released the Korean 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 second language version of the AA1000AP (2018) to be translated, the Korean version extends the accessibility of the AA1000AP (2018), which organisations of all sizes, and across industry sectors, have successfully applied to identify, prioritise and respond to sustainability challenges to improve their overall, long-term performance – for over two decades.
“South Korea is a vibrant and growing market which includes a large number of organisations that have benefited greatly from applying the AccountAbility Principles over the years. We welcome the addition of the local language version of the AA1000AP (2018) for the region. We hope that it will enable more organisations in the region to access and adopt our tried and tested approach to sustainability management,” said AccountAbility CEO, Mr. Sunny Misser.
Mr. Dongsoo Kim, Director of the Sustainability Management Center at the Korea Productivity Center (KPC), and AA1000 Standards Board member, commented, “Over the past decade, the AccountAbility Principles have played a pivotal role in establishing a solid foundation for Korean organisations’ sustainable management reporting. Amid the changes and innovation over time, AA1000AP has also evolved and we are pleased to share the developments through the revised version as well as the Korean translation. AA1000AP (2018) serves as a blueprint that renders the future direction of sustainable management reporting, through which we hope the Korean organisations construct superior reporting practices.”
