EFAA-IFAC Webinar: Sustainability Offers New Opportunities for SMPs
December 15, 2021 (8:00am – 9:30am ET/ 2:00pm – 3:30pm CET)

Sustainability is not just about the environment. The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), defines sustainability as “a commitment to eradicate poverty and achieve a sustainable world by 2030 and beyond, with human well-being and a healthy planet at its core.” Sustainable development is a core principle of the Treaty on European Union and a priority objective for the Union’s internal and external policies.

Small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) collectively account for a significant, if not majority, share of environmental and social impacts by private sector business. Consequently SMEs, and the small- and medium-sized accountancy practices (SMPs) that provide professional services to them, stand to play a vital role in making economies worldwide sustainable. The focus on business resilience and survival has become even more critical due to the Covid-19 pandemic, which has also contributed to putting certain social issues further in the spotlight.

It is important for SMPs to continue to focus on practice transformation and providing relevant and value-added services to their clients. Sustainability offers an opportunity to broaden their service provision and help their clients/employers improve the way they run their businesses. Applying the same principles to the practice itself can help accountants improve the way they run their own businesses as well. 

This webinar event will cover recent developments focused on SMPs and SMEs and involve a distinguished panel covering how SMPs can get started and examples of those taking action in this growing area.
