IFAC and Climate Action: Letter of Support to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change

Oct 14, 2015 | Comment Letters

In this letter to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), IFAC issues its support of the UNFCCC’s facilitation of the forthcoming international climate negotiations at the 21st session of the Conference of the Parties.

As the global organization for the accountancy profession, IFAC is advocating for a universal agreement and effective international dialogue that encourages the transition toward resilient, low-carbon societies and economies.

In addition to providing our commitment to climate action on long-term global emissions, IFAC is raising awareness of the important role played by the accountancy profession and professional accountants in facilitating governments, capital markets, and organizations to implement plans for climate change mitigation and adaptation.
