CA ANZ’s long-standing association with King Charles III

Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand was established under Royal Charter in 1928 and as an organisation we also have a long-standing association with The King.

We are proud to be a founding member of the Accounting for Sustainability (A4S), Accounting Bodies Network (ABN) established by His Majesty King Charles III, when he was HRH The Prince of Wales, in 2004, to transform finance to deliver a sustainable future and “to help ensure that we are not battling to meet 21st century challenges with, at best, 20th century decision making and reporting systems.”

Significantly, in 2020, the ABN members issued a call to action to their members to combat climate change and in 2021, ABN members committed their organisations to achieve net zero greenhouses zero.

Together the ABN represents more than 2.5 million professional accountants and students across 179 countries, representing two thirds of the world's accountants.
