CAPA is supportive of IFAC’s call to action on Sustainability: Next Steps for the Accountancy Profession.

The International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB) is now a reality with its mission to develop a global baseline of sustainability disclosures.

This Global Sustainability Dialogue webinar provides an opportunity to explore the important role of the accountancy profession as “enablers” of the transition to sustainability.

IFAC CEO Kevin Dancey and IFAC’s Thought Leadership staff will present on IFAC’s latest policy initiatives and analysis—addressing the need for organizations to adopt an Integrated Mindset, updating global developments in standard-setting, and presenting the latest research on the State of Play in reporting and assurance of sustainability information.

A group of PAOs from CAPA’s membership will provide insights into the challenges and opportunities they see in their respective jurisdictions.

This event is catered for those in the Asia Pacific time zone. Expected participants will include the leadership and relevant key representatives of Professional Accountancy Organisations (PAOs) and other relevant stakeholders involved in this area. PAOs may forward this invitation to key relevant stakeholders in their respective jurisdictions. This event is not open to the public.

The agenda for this event is provided below.

We look forward to having you join the event.
