As ICAEW Chartered Accountants in Scotland we all want to do our bit to protect the earth for future generations and so, to celebrate COP26 coming to Glasgow and Scotland in November 2021, we have prepared a Sustainability Action Calendar for the month.

There is no mandatory format to the challenge. Just keep it flexible, mix it up and engage in the level that is right for you, whether you are at home or in the office.
Here are just some of the ways in which you can get involved. You could:

  • pledge to complete every day of the challenge
  • work with others to split the month between you
  • focus on the weekend challenges
  • commit to one challenge a week.

We have also highlighted days where actions contribute to some of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs); the most pressing needs for all humanity – now and in the future. More information about the SDGs is available on the ICAEW Global Goals hub

The most important thing is getting creative and having some fun! We'd love it if you shared your daily challenges and achievements on social media using the hashtag #30DaysToSustainableWays and #Accountants4COP26 or email to ims@icaew.com.

It’s not every year that world leaders come to Scotland so let’s celebrate by giving a little more thought to the planet.

The calendar is based on an original idea created by Albert Goodman and subsequently used by ICAEW South West.

Our thanks also to the small group of ICAEW Chartered Accountants in Scotland who have kindly given their time and creative thinking to developing this calendar for ICAEW members in Scotland, and to the ICAEW Scotland Sustainability Sub-Group.
