Corporate accountability expanded rapidly in recent years as a governance mechanism that companies are in need to employ to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. Nevertheless, the transition from corporate accountability theory to implementation is still a difficult objective, as it is identified through case study analysis in this publication. It requires both, better governance between public and private actors and adequate alignment with sustainability agendas. Thus, the study reported in this publication builds knowledge on corporate accountability theory and provides policy advisory to stakeholders to identify existing corporate accountability gaps and priority areas in Asia and The Pacific. Based on a multiple case study methodology that compares Republic of Korea, Myanmar and Sri Lanka, this publication equips stakeholders with a comprehensive analysis and recommendations on how to integrate corporate accountability in alignment with the global sustainability agenda at all levels of governance.
