About the Sustainability Committee

Sustainability Committee


Committee Action Plan



Who We Are:


Society members with an interest in the accounting, reporting and compliance matters developing around the concept of sustainability accounting – the use and presentation of financial and non-financial information to external parties such as capital holders, stakeholders, environmental authorities, government and public interest entities regarding an organization's impact on society, environment, and economy.



What We Do:


·         Involve members of the NYSSCPA in the evolving dialogue and financial reporting requirements and disclosures (both voluntary and mandated) that cut across all sectors, including real estate, transportation, energy, water and land use, people (resource management) and compliance (corporate governance, regulatory compliance, board and stakeholder relationships). 

·         Address and coordinate efforts across financial experts – CPAs, CFOs, controllers and financial analysts – to help inform, define and improve sustainability indicators and help translate them into unified and integrated financial and sustainability corporate reporting.

·         Encourage and help develop young professionals in an evolving career track. 

·         Educate the membership on this fast growing area of corporate reporting.



Who Should Join:


Members in public practice and industry with an expertise in or who have an interest in sustainability should consider joining this committee.
