Our purpose and values
Our purpose and values reinforce everything ACCA stands for: who we are, how we do it, and why we exist in today's world.
We’re a force for public good. We lead the global accountancy profession by creating opportunity.
Our purpose sets out the value we seek to create for society. The idea of opening up the profession, doing things differently and better, and never losing sight of our public interest remit are concepts that lie at the very heart of ACCA’s DNA.
We create opportunity for all. We remove artificial barriers, create connections and embrace diversity.
We're ethical, honest and accountable and encourage the same from others. We act in the public interest and focus on long-term value.
We think ahead. We explore new ideas, creating solutions that ensure our community and the wider profession is ready for today and tomorrow.
Our three values reflect the unique reasons why ACCA was created in the first place, and the difference we’ve brought to the global profession, and expresses them in a way that reflects our world today.
