A growing, global demand for sustainability—in society, in public and private organizations, and on our planet—has fueled demand for enhancing corporate reporting. For investors and sustainability-minded stakeholders to assess a company’s future performance, they need a clear and comprehensive picture of the ability to create sustainability value over time. Professional accountants and the accountancy profession need to play key roles—we are the right people to serve the public interest in the development and execution of sustainability related processes and reporting. We have the necessary skills and competencies.

To help professional accountants, and the professional accountancy organizations that support them, understand the growing demands for sustainability services from the public and private sector, IFAC has dedicated its second annual virtual summit to sustainability and helping professional accountants do different things with the skills and competencies they already have in their toolbox.
