Sustainability Reporting and Education: An opportunity to influence the global direction of accountancy education
Join us in conversation with Bruce Vivian, Head of Accountancy Education at IFAC. Bruce will share information on IFAC’s Sustainability Reporting Project and provide an opportunity for you to share your perspectives.
IFAC is a global organisation seeking to enhance the relevance, reputation, and value of the global accountancy profession. It represents millions of professional accountants worldwide through its members and associate organisations.
In 2019, IFAC established the International Panel on Accountancy Education (IPAE), whose members represent accountancy organisations, accountants in practice and business, and academics. The Panel provides IFAC with strategic advice in preparing “future-fit” accountants.
In the field of sustainability-related information, the IPAE acknowledges that professional accountants will play an important role in responding to the demand for increased transparency, disclosure of reliable information and enhanced trust. As a result, it has initiated a Sustainability Reporting Project (SRP).
The SRP focuses on the professional competencies professional accountants need to fulfil their roles in sustainability-related reporting and assurance services.
Join us in conversation with Bruce Vivian, Head of Accountancy Education at IFAC. Bruce will share more information on the SRP, and provide an opportunity for you to share your perspectives.
