Climate change publications (ACCA)
Founded in 1904, ACCA (the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) has been actively involved in the unfolding debate on corporate social responsibility since 1990. They aim to promote transparency and best practice, and to help businesses and organisations realise the growing importance of sustainability to them.
ACCA produces a series of publications on corporate social responsibility each year, aimed at informing students, professionals, businesses and organisations on what is a rapidly developing sector.
These reports are made available here through a joint project between ACCA, CSEAR, and the University of St Andrews Library.
