Purpose and vision
We’re setting out an ambitious vision to create a bold future.
We have redefined who we are and what we stand for, allowing us to navigate challenges and embrace opportunities.
We’re adapting to and embracing positive change, with a renewed focus on always delivering value for our members, students, firms and wider society.
Uphold ethics. Cultivate trust.
As the world changes, the importance of doing the right thing does not. We ‘seek the truth’ and have been since 1854. As ethical leaders, the business community looks to us and our members to uphold standards. To cultivate trust in everything we do.
Chartered Accountants are the backbone of ethical and sustainable business. That’s why we commit to educational and regulatory excellence and act in the public interest to restore and protect trust.
We support prosperity and wellbeing, nurture our students and build a member community who wear the CA badge with pride.
To empower trusted professionals to create a better tomorrow.
Our members perform at the forefront of ethical and sustainable business. Educated, regulated, and led by the highest standards of ethical leadership, they are at the top of their game. Trusted professionals, they transform business and support one another, for the greater good.
We commit to serve the future of our profession, to redefine standards in learning, regulation and membership. In doing so we’ll continue to build resilient economies that meet the urgent environmental and social challenges of our changing world.
We are a close team with big influence.
We’re proud of the difference we can make to a profession that’s transforming to meet the urgent environmental and social challenges of our changing world.
Our values are who we are, how we behave, why we come to work, and how we interact with each other, our customers and stakeholders.
- We’re team spirited – we hold people in high regard, we trust and are trusted, and we are kind.
- We’re smart working – we innovate with purpose, we embrace change, and we are responsible.
- We’re proudly committed – we give our best, we do the right thing, and we are proud to care.
