Be part of the Sustainability and Climate Change Community

A collective ambition for change

We are the first major professional body to announce we are becoming carbon neutral – we are offsetting all of our emissions and working towards shrinking our carbon footprint. As part of our ongoing commitment, ICAEW has now created the Sustainability and Climate Change Community. Its purpose is to provide inspiration, insights and collective ambition for professionals delivering on sustainability and acting on climate change.
