ASI publishes stories of change on the ground
Since the first certification was achieved against the ASI Performance Standard in April 2018, we have been collecting anecdotal evidence and feedback from ASI Members as to how their implementation of the ASI Standards and process of certification has created change in their activities and real impact on the ground. This evidence is continuously being assessed, refined and expanded through on-site investigation and interviews. The compilation of these inputs is now being used to create stories for ASI’s ‘Story of Change’ Series.
Two years later, with more than 50 certifications achieved, we have a solid body of implementation experience to draw from. In most of the third-party audits to date, it appears that ASI Members that have undergone certification have been near or at conformance levels for most of the applicable ASI Standard/s criteria. Nevertheless, Members have frequently found that, during the process of preparing for the audit, new light has been shed on opportunities to improve their performance.
