Accounting for Sustainability celebrates its 15th anniversary by sharing insights on how the profession can positively transform the future

SAICA, as a member of the Accounting 4 Sustainability Accounting Bodies Network (ABN), has made a great deal of progress in the knowledge and skills needed to implement sustainable finance practices. But as the world changes due to macro sustainability trends such as climate change, biodiversity loss and inequality, more is needed. Our profession needs to adapt in order to be at the forefront of these changes, and as your professional body, we will support you on this journey.

As a professional body, it is vital that we help the profession adapt so that it keeps pace with sustainability developments.

To celebrate the 15-year anniversary of the Accounting Bodies Network, we have shared our views of how we think the profession may transform in the future in this thought piece. This collection of insights focuses on how systems, technology and skills will change the profession in the near future, and what we, as SAICA, can do to support you to adapt.

We look forward to helping shape that future and building a springboard from which new generations of accountants can take us even further.
