The Prince's Accounting for Sustainability Project

The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants is a member of the Accounting Bodies Network, established by The Prince’s Accounting for Sustainability Project (A4S) to bring together the largest accounting bodies from across the globe, to help minimize the duplication of initiatives undertaken in isolation and achieve a common approach to accounting for sustainability.

Established by HRH The Prince of Wales in 2004, the Project develops practical guidance and tools to enable environmental and social performance to be better connected with strategy and financial performance, and thereby embedded into day-to-day operations and decision making: As His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales said at its launch, “to help ensure that we are not battling to meet 21st century challenges with, at best, 20th century decision making and reporting systems.”

A4S has collaborated with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), International Federation of Accountants (IFAC) and other global organizations to establish an 'International Integrated Reporting Council' (IIRC).

TrueValueMetrics (TVM) is an Open Source / Open Knowledge initiative. It has been funded by family and friends plus donations from well wishers who understand the importance of accountability and getting the management metrics right. TVM is a 'big idea' that has the potential to be a game changer leveling the playing field so the wealth and power is shared on a more reasonable basis between people who work for a living and those that own the economy and the levers of power. In order to be effective, it cannot be funded in the conventional way with a for profit business plan, but absolutely must remain an open access initiative.
WE WANT TO MAINTAIN AN OPEN KNOWLEDGE MODEL
A MODEST DONATION WILL HELP MAKE THAT HAPPEN
