Advocacy in Action – 3 Common Global Advocacy Themes
The finance and accounting profession is facing many of the same challenges around the world, and the Association is using its voice to educate regulatory and legislative policymakers, as well as standard setters.
While the Association’s advocacy team is engaged in a range of issues to support the profession, three common themes drawing the greatest interest are political engagement, corporate reporting and sustainability.
The Association’s global advocacy team is working with influencers and stakeholders to align on future skills and qualifications, so that the profession can continue to offer the services it has long provided to clients. In various geographies, the advocacy team is advancing how the profession can aid economic growth – leading global businesses and dealing with issues such as inflation and risk management. Additionally, the advocacy team is engaged with governments as they seek ways to recalibrate the corporate ecosystem and with standard setters as they work to enhance the sustainability information companies provide, which will lead to increased transparency and accountability.
