Sustainability & SDGs

Sustainability focuses on meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs.

In this section Chartered Accountants Worldwide and our Member Institutes share our insights on how to promote and meet the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Chartered Accountants and the Global Goals

Sustainability focuses on meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs.

The concept of sustainability is composed of three pillars: economic, environmental, and social—also known informally as profits, planet, and people.

Chartered Accountants Worldwide and our Member Institutes are committed to working with the financial sector to ensure that we meet the targets set out in the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Together we are working to encourage businesses to frame decisions in terms of environmental, social, and human impact for the long-term, rather than on short-term gains. Influencing them to consider more factors than simply the immediate profit or loss involved.

We believe that with everyones help, we can, in this decade, create a cleaner, greener, fairer world. We encourage companies to issue commitments to achieve the UN SDGs by 2030.

anxiety

Coping with anxiety-Life is Tough, but so are you.

With the spike of Anxiety in 2022, this conversation focuses on Anxiety, coping mechanism and how to navigate through 2022, when your anxiety spikes or strikes. Anxiety is all too real, it effects an individual’s personal and professional life. We discuss how anxiety impacts decision, judgement and choices.

beliefs

How core beliefs shape our behaviour

Using the ABC paradigm of thinking and behaving is a good way to start shaping our beliefs, through managing our self-perceptions and self-images. ABC is an abbreviation that stands for Antecedents, Behaviour, and Consequences. As a method for behaviour assessment and formulation, it is particularly beneficial when clinicians, clients, caretakers or individuals are interested in understanding the ‘active ingredients’ of self-diagnosing a problem that may arise.

letting go of what you cannot control

Letting go of what you can’t control

We will all inevitably face challenges in life. However, this is not where our struggles lie. Our struggles lie in our reaction to these challenges, and our illusion that we can control them. This webinar focuses on building self-awareness and the problems we face when we try to control things that are outside of our control.
