National and Business Accounts for Sustainable Development Policies

event date: April 19–23, 2021The International Conference on Accounting & Assessment in Statistics (ICAAS) 2021 is a new online conference, based on the overarching need to discuss ongoing developments on this topic in response to policy needs. ICAAS is held to address the issues of statistical methodologies and thematic applications in accounting and assessment. Discussions will focus on the new tools provision, particularly in the areas needed for sustainable development policies.

Statistical offices with the support of research institutions are developing national statistical systems that can meet the monitoring and evaluation requirements of development frameworks, such as, as a leading example, the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Companies and rating agencies, for their part, are expanding accounting and reporting in the non-economic area to assess several standards and specifically the Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance (ESG) performances.

The conference will take place online. More detailed information on the conference's webpage.
