Accountants’ Due Diligence for SDG Transparency in the Post-Covid-19 Era

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debate

Abstract

The global spread of Covid-19 has set the United Nations (UN) member states unprecedented challenges to meet their commitments under the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), ranging from reducing global poverty, achieving gender equality and institutional transparency to mitigating climate change. At the same time, the pandemic has made all member states realize the importance of durability for the global economy, society and the environment. The crisis obviously will cause the measurement of organizational performance, accountability and transparency to shift, allowing accountants and auditors to play significant roles. Importantly, accountants and auditors can create a world of transparency in the process of implementating the SDGs in the post-Covid-19 era.
