Many folks have been following the development of the AA1000 Stakeholder Engagement Standard over these last few years. The final draft of this international standard for stakeholder engagement has been released for review and comment at http://accountabilityaa1000wiki.net/wiki/.
According to the project website, the goal of the revision was to move the standard away from being mostly “a CSR process and [to] make it more strategically relevant for engagements across businesses, governments and other organisations. The new AA1000SES needs to provide a mechanism for engagement that can be robust at the global level but flexible enough for local application, that looks beyond process to outcomes and impact evaluation. There is also a need to better link the numerous sustainability initiatives and their understanding of quality stakeholder engagement.”
