About this report
This year’s report sets out how we are keeping ACCA strong, on behalf of our members and future members, through these unprecedented times. We believe ACCA’s new strategy to 2025 provides a strong and relevant framework to enable us to respond to the challenges the Covid-19 global pandemic is posing for all of us.
Our report also considers our progress over the lifetime of our strategy to 2020 and the foundations it has created for ACCA’s future, in order to meet the needs of our members and our wider ACCA community.
This is our ninth annual integrated report and the sixth prepared in accordance with the international <IR> framework (published by the International Integrated Reporting Council in December 2013). It’s designed to give anyone whose success depends on ACCA – especially our members, future members, education providers and employers – insight into the strategic thinking that drives ACCA forward, encompassing our strategy, governance, performance and prospects in the context of our global environment.
