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
- Material Stewardship
- Greenhouse Gas Emissions
- Emissions, Effluents and Waste
- 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.
