AccountAbility was honored to host Chairman Myung-Soo Kang and the Korean Standards Association (KSA) at the University Club of New York on Friday, June 21, 2024, to continue our partnership towards advancing sustainability reporting and disclosure.

AccountAbility CEO, Mr. Sunny Misser, and KSA Chairman, Mr. Myung-Soo Kang, signed the AA1000 training licensing agreement, which enables the KSA to continue delivering AA1000 training courses to practitioners in the region.

Chairman Kang was joined by Professor Chul Woo Moon, a Professor in Strategy at the Sungkyunkwan University business school and a member of the GSG Working Group for Impact Wholesale Fund, and Sung-Sik Kwon, a Director of ESG at KSA.

AccountAbility also welcomed guests from The International Ethics Standards Board for Accountants (IESBA) to reinforce our strong relationship with their Chair – Ms. Gabriela Figueiredo Dias – as part of our push to build strong global networks with other standards bodies. These guests included James Gunn, IFEA, Secretary and Treasurer, and IAASB, IESBA, and IPSASB Managing Director, and Principals, Kam Leung and Jon Reid.

With the ever-evolving global landscape of ESG regulations and standards, these partnerships represent the shared commitment that entities like AccountAbility, KSA and IESBA make to educate businesses about the importance of high-quality sustainability disclosures and assurance for greater transparency, performance, and impact.
