Certification story

Membership organisations The International Association of Bookkeepers (IAB) and The International Association of Accounting Professionals (IAAP) have achieved the Planet Mark certification.

Achieving the Planet Mark is based on the commitment to continuous improvement in sustainability in its business operations by measuring and reducing its carbon footprint and engaging its stakeholders. They recognise that understanding their carbon footprint is the first step in identifying ways to minimise its impact on the planet.

Over the next year, IAB and IAAP will be working towards reducing their carbon emissions and sharing their journey with their community to inspire others. By being more strategic about its environmental responsibility, the company will be able to significantly increase its positive impact and hope to encourage continual improvements within its community.

Through Planet Mark, IAB and IAAP have protected an area of endangered rainforest thanks to Cool Earth; a charity working alongside rainforest communities to halt deforestation. Its pledge through Cool Earth directly supports the Asháninka community in Central Peru.

They have also helped the Eden Project – an educational charity building connections with each other and the living world, exploring how we can work together towards a better future.

Future targets

Reduce carbon footprint by 5% annually

As part of the Planet Mark certification, IAB and IAAP have committed to making a year-on-year reduction.
