On November 23, 2015, the Accounting Bodies Network (ABN), established by the Prince of Wales' Accounting for Sustainability project (A4S), is calling on world leaders ahead of the COP 21 Climate Change meeting in Paris to put in place a framework that will enables investors to make informed decisions that will support the goal of a sustainable future.

In an open letter, the ABN notes that professional accountants can help to address climate change, as accounting is central to decision-making and professional accountants can provide relevant analysis, reporting and assurance to help organizations generate and preserve value, and can therefore be influential in driving sustainable behaviours. In order to do so, however, it is essential that world leaders agree a common framework.
