Izza Looks To an FCA's Wider Social Purpose

Michael Izza, ICAEW Chief Executive

The Sustainable Development Goals are an important framework to ensure governments and businesses are pursuing the long-term public interest, so we hope the Prime Minister will use them as a foundation for the UK’s post-Covid recovery plans.

As chartered accountants we think it’s vital businesses look beyond profit and have a wider social purpose, and we’re pleased to have so many organisations join our call to government to put these goals front and centre.
