ACCA - The global body for professional accountants

ACCA has been actively involved in the unfolding debate on corporate social responsibility since 1990. We promote transparency and best practice, and aim to help businesses and organisations realise the growing importance of sustainability to them.

ACCA champions the extension of corporate reporting to include the social and environmental aspects of a business. Members' accounting and financial reporting skills have a key role to play in the transition to, and management of, the low-carbon economy, which will be of benefit to society as a whole.

We seek to use our strong market position to highlight the urgency of acting on sustainability challenges. Through greater engagement with our members and students on sustainability and CSR issues, ACCA will help to ensure long-term improvements in organisational sustainability for the benefit of the public as a whole.
