Standards

AccountAbility’s AA1000 Series of Standards are principles-based frameworks used by global businesses, private enterprises, governments, and other public and private organizations to demonstrate leadership and performance in accountability, responsibility, and sustainability.

For over two decades, organizations large and small, private and public, have come to rely on AccountAbility’s standards to guide their approach to sustainability strategy, governance, and operations.

AccountAbility is recognized as a Framework Developer in the World Economic Forum's ESG Ecosystem Map, acknowledging the impact of the AA1000 Series of Standards in advancing large-scale, integrated, and focused ESG change.

The AA1000 Series of Standards include simple, practical, and easy-to-use frameworks for:

  • Developing, analyzing, and implementing sustainability initiatives (AA1000AP, 2018)
  • Creating and conducting inclusive sustainability-related stakeholder engagement practices (AA1000SES, 2015)
  • Assuring credibility in reporting on progress toward sustainability goals (AA1000AS v3)
