MODAV-ICA 2023, 20th International Conference on Accounting will bring together leading academics, researchers, and aspiring academicians to exchange and share their ideas, experiences, and research findings in all aspects of accounting. The conference also provides a collegial interdisciplinary academic environment for the participants to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, propositions, and hypotheses developed for challenges in the field of accounting especially in relation to environmental issues.

The United Nations 2030 Agenda has inspired 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs) and 169 goals to address sustainability issues, which are global challenges. Among these innovative goals of the 2030 agenda, climate actions and clean energy adaption cited by SDGs number 13 and 7, respectively force countries to take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts. Climate change is perceived as one of the most severe global risks in The Global Risks Report 2023 issued by the World Economic Forum. Also, the message; “There’s no credible pathway to 1.5C in place today ” from UN Environment Programme’s (UNEP) last report points to the significant growing climate change impacts across the globe. In this context, corporations have outsized roles to manage the planet’s serious problem; climate change. Good governance that promotes accountability and transparency is a substantial determinant for corporations in driving global climate change.
