At IFAC, we have the privilege of meeting with global experts on important topics ranging from sustainability and environmental, social and governance (ESG) reporting to education technology. These experts inform IFAC’s work and our volunteer advisory groups’ thinking. In particular, the International Panel on Accountancy Education uses regular conversations with experts to understand current issues facing our profession, explore implications to the profession, including effects on accountants’ skills and competencies. We also use these conversations to facilitate our advocacy for the profession.

The IFAC EdExchange video series presents the sessions and speakers’ discussions to consider the impact for developing skills and competencies, or acquiring knowledge, for the accounting profession. We believe this will help arm our profession with further knowledge. We are keen to encourage an exchange of views to further enhance the profession’s understanding of some of these new questions we face.

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.

IFAC is dedicating our second annual virtual summit to sustainability and helping professional accountants do different things with the skills and competencies they already have in their toolbox.

Our three-day summit in October will focus on the demand for organizations to act and the needs and perspectives of investors, regulators and public interest entities. It features speakers with global expertise in sustainability, environmental, social, and governance (ESG), integrated and sustainability reporting, sustainability-related investor needs, and more. It will help professional accountants, and the professional accountancy organizations that support them, understand—and take action to meet—growing demands for sustainability services from the public and private sector.
