Chartered Accountants Ireland is working on embedding sustainability throughout our activities.

The Institute was one of 14 accounting bodies worldwide to become signatories to a call to action on climate change issued by A4S in February 2020. In 2020, Chartered Accountants Ireland launched its Sustainability Hub with information, guidance, and supports to help members understand sustainability and meet the challenges it presents.
