Globalization and industrialization have provided many social benefits. They have also created sustainable development dilemmas in the areas of inequality and extreme poverty, climate change, and other social and ethical challenges.
In 2015, the United Nations (UN) developed 17 sustainable development goals (SDG), a universal set of goals to enable all UN members to respond to sustainability challenges and develop an agenda and policies to sustain people, the planet and prosperity over the next 15 years.
Professional accountants play significant roles in governance; risk management and control; and business analysis and decision support. Recognizing the growing importance of those roles as SDG gain traction, the International Federation of Accountants (IFAC) Professional Accountants in Business (PAIB) Committee conducted workshops and meetings with international thought leaders in accounting and business to outline the key opportunities for global accountants to contribute to the SDG.
