JICPA issued its roadmap toward Net zero
In October of 2021, the Accounting Bodies Network (ABN)*1, a member network of the Prince of Wales' Accounting for Sustainability Project (A4S)*2 , issued "ABN NET ZERO COMMITMENT", a joint statement pledging to implement initiatives to achieve net zero emissions. Therefore, each PAO has prepared roadmap for achieving net zero emissions based on the joint statement. In response to the global challenge of tackling climate change, the JICPA will proactively consider measures and work to ensure that accountants and accounting professional bodies contribute to the achievement of net zero.
For details of the journey and progression toward net zero by each professional accountancy organization (PAO), visit a dedicated page on the A4S's website.
