Integrating the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in corporate reporting: The role of accountants (2021)$5,631
The 17 UNSDGs launched in 2015 are the most comprehensive, integrated, and holistic goals seeking to achieve social and environmental sustainability in all spheres of life. Focusing on this agenda, the study will explore how the accounting profession and accountants are well-positioned (or not well-positioned) to contribute towards SDGs. Accountants prepare financial reports mainly profit and loss statement to report the financial performance of companies, however reporting boundaries should be extended beyond financial performance and integrate a range of sustainability reporting's (Deegan, 2020). This study will provide fertile grounds for future SDG accounting research, to ensure that appropriate consideration is given to explore the changing role of accountants that encompasses SDG reporting and creating value for stakeholders.
