Our Planet: Too Big To Fail
ICAEW is the first major professional body to announce we are becoming carbon neutral – we are offsetting all of our emissions and working towards shrinking our carbon footprint. As part of our ongoing commitment, ICAEW has created the Sustainability and Climate Change Community that seeks to provide inspiration, insights and collective ambition for professionals delivering on sustainability and acting on climate change.
ICAEW has supported the World Wide Fund for Nature to spread the message of the importance of the finance sector in the fight to restore our natural economy.
Our Planet: Too Big To Fail is a story that everyone in finance needs to know. Inspired by the original Netflix Our Planet series and created by Emmy® Award-winning Silverback Films and WWF, Our Planet: Too Big To Fail explores the risks of inaction, the impact of investing-as-usual, and the critical role the finance sector can play in the fight for our world.
“The ACA is an attractive offering because it has a comprehensive learning programme which is delivered through flexible modules allowing trainees to balance their work and studies. It also provides an alternative route in to the profession which helps to contribute to our diverse workforce.”

“We are always in the hunt for people who have excellent communication skills. The ability to understand our client’s needs is something that is very valuable to us. When a person can connect well with a client, half the battle has already been won.”
Megat Iskandar Shah
Financial Services Partner, EY
“Hard and soft qualities are both equally important. Solid financial acumen, communication skills, professionalism, reliability, time management skills, multi-tasking abilities and problem-solving skills are just a few of the qualities that we use to evaluate our candidates.”
Ahmad Tifli Mohd Talha
Group Chief Financial Officer, FGV Holding Berhad
“Academic excellence is not enough. At PwC, we expect you to lead yourself and others to deliver results in a responsible manner, play an active role in your own development, work well in a diverse team, take an interest in how businesses work beyond your own geographic and cultural boundaries, and take pride in producing work of high quality. You should be a graduate who is resilient yet agile in adapting to different conditions. These are the traits which are essential in the rapidly changing world and prepares you for the working world of the future.”
“One of Deloitte Vietnam’s main focus is to invest in talent development to achieve our objective of sustainable development. We highly value candidates who possess internationally recognised qualifications such as ICAEW ACA and ICAEW CFAB due to the fact that they have not only a solid background knowledge but also sound skills set that help them perform their tasks effectively and efficiently. Besides, their English skill, which I highly value, also sets them apart from their peers.”
HR Director, Deloitte
“The CFAB qualification gave me a broad and robust perspectives surrounding business and finance and ultimately, provided a proper step up system toward the full ACA qualification. What I really enjoy about being an ICAEW student was the regular student events where I meet with other students. Finding a job will be much easier with ICAEW certification as there are many employers who recognise this certification.”
