The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) is the global body for professional accountants, supporting 178,000 members and 455,000 students throughout their careers, and providing support and services through a network of over 95 offices and centres.
As a partner of the IIRC since its inception, ACCA has been at the forefront in supporting the integrated reporting movement. We were the first international professional accountancy body to examine <IR> in our qualification, and the first to produce an integrated report on our own corporate performance. As <IR> moves into mainstream adoption, we are proud to provide the IIRC with additional backing – as a Breakthrough Partner – as we believe that <IR> is the most promising initiative in improving the quality of corporate reporting in recent years. Through our enhanced support of strategic projects and promotion of <IR>, we’re looking forward to working ever more closely with the IIRC to effect lasting positive change in the reporting environment.
‘As the global body for professional accountants, we have unparalleled reach and a truly international perspective on what the world needs from our profession. Through integrated reporting and our support for the IIRC, we are committed to playing a leading role in the corporate reporting revolution.’ Helen Brand OBE, Chief Executive, ACCA and IIRC Board member
