The ACCA Global Forum for Sustainability

In the context of increasing environmental regulation and the need for businesses to identify and manage a more diverse range of risks, our sustainability forum aims articulate and communicate the relevance of sustainability issues for the business community and the accountancy profession.

It monitors international trends and developments in sustainability and leads ACCA’s contribution to policy development in this area.
