COP26
Climate Change Hub

The UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) is the most significant climate event since the 2015 Paris Agreement.

In this section Chartered Accountants Worldwide and our Member Institutes share our insights about why accountants are instrumental in bringing about a greener future.

Chartered Accountants and Climate Change

Globally, over 100 countries have committed to reach net zero carbon emissions by 2050 including the European Union, Canada, United States and United Kingdom.

This will require a significant re-organisation of global priorities. The UN estimates that the economic and societal shifts caused by climate change could result in 69 trillion dollars in global financial losses this century, if the risks are not properly managed.

Chartered Accountants globally will play an integral role in whether governments and businesses have what is required to meet their commitments and tackle climate change at scale. Paul Polman, acclaimed businessman and campaigner, captured the significance of our role in the fight against climate change saying “you cannot treasure what you cannot measure”.

Chartered Accountants Worldwide and our Member Institutes believe that Chartered Accountants have all the skills to support climate action within the companies in which they operate, by doing what they do best. The profession needs to recognise and embrace the opportunities we face to make a positive difference.

This hub is a global resource to learn more and inspire you to take action.
