Download the ASI Performance Standard: Principles and Criteria


The ASI Performance Standard: Principles and Criteria were launched in December 2014.  It was developed with a multi-stakeholder Standard Setting Group, comprised of interested parties with a broad representation of interests in the key issues addressed by the standard.  The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) acted as coordinator of the standard-setting process.

The Performance Standard is grouped into three main sections:  governance, environment and social.


  • Business Integrity
  • Policy and Management
  • Transparency
  • Material Stewardship


  • Greenhouse Gas Emissions
  • Emissions, Effluents and Waste
  • Water
  • Biodiversity


  • Human Rights
  • Labour Rights
  • Occupational Health and Safety

Previous drafts of the performance standard published during the standards setting process are also available here for information purposes.
