AccountAbility 1000 Assurance Standard: Sustainability Reporting & Verification
In an age where almost any company claims sustainability, third party verification of sustainability reports is becoming increasingly important.
AA1000 is a publicly available framework for sustainability reporting & assurance. The framework enables organizations to identify, understand and respond to sustainability issues, as well as to report on them and to be accountable to all stakeholders. Organizations that have implemented the AccountAbility Principles have the opportunity to increase the credibility of their sustainability reports with an assessment according to AA1000AS.
„Credibility is a prerequisite for effective sustainability reporting. Credibility can be considerably enhanced through independent external assurance, using accepted professional standards.” (AA100AS, p. 6)
