ACCA - The global body for professional accountants

We believe that organisations have a responsibility to account for their impact on society and the environment. Organisations must develop strategies that take account of their impact on sustainability and should consider environmental issues alongside their core business functions such as risk, governance, research and development, and manufacture. 

Organisations should respond to stakeholders while embracing changes that will help bring about a low carbon economy, and transform their business processes to meet new regulations on issues such as climate change, water and biodiversity.

Environmental accountability should be measured, managed and reported to society as this will help bring about improvements. Our research and insights focus on a range of aspects, in particular climate change and biodiversity and ecosystem services.
