AccountAbility-Stakeholder Engagement Standard

Category: Green Standards

AccountAbility would like to announce the release of the final version of the AA1000 Stakeholder Engagement Standard (AA1000SES) 2015.  Part of the AA1000 Series of Standards, the AA1000SES (2015) provides practical guidance on how to assess, design, implement and communicate effective stakeholder engagement.


The AA1000SES (2015), illustrates relevant and robust procedures in the full management cycle of stakeholder engagement, and is a useful, practical and value-added framework.


The latest standard is the result of a broad, international, multi-stakeholder process that evolved through the years to establish the benchmark for good-quality engagement. AA1000SES (2015) can be used as a tool to support risk management, protect the license to operate, enhance the brand, and provide the foundation for improving the overall sustainability performance of the organisation.

The newly released AA1000SES (2015) contains requirements highlighted to provide clear guidance, and supporting frameworks in a format designed to improve the ease-of-use.


The final version of the AA1000SES (2015) is available at:
