Corporate Disclosures on Sustainability
CCAB has published a report summarising the current position of corporate sustainability reporting in the UK. We intend that this should provide a thought piece which will inform discussion and debate. Click here » to read the report.
The Prince's Accounting for Sustainability Project
The CCAB bodies are all members of the Accounting Bodies Network, established by The Prince’s Accounting for Sustainability Project (A4S) to bring together the largest accounting bodies from across the globe, to help minimise the duplication of initiatives undertaken in isolation and achieve a common approach to accounting for sustainability.
Established by HRH The Prince of Wales in 2004, the Project develops practical guidance and tools to enable environmental and social performance to be better connected with strategy and financial performance, and thereby embedded into day-to-day operations and decision making: As His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales said at its launch, “to help ensure that we are not battling to meet 21st century challenges with, at best, 20th century decision making and reporting systems.”
A4S has collaborated with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), International Federation of Accountants (IFAC) and other global organisations to establish an "International Integrated Reporting Committee" (IIRC).
In 2011 A4S will launch a community website in collaboration with the International Federation of Accountants. This will be a vibrant community for anyone with an interest in accounting for sustainability to discuss and share ideas.
