The AICPA has appointed Jeremy Osborn to the newly created role of global head of environmental, social and governance (ESG) matters.
Osborn joins the AICPA from the Value Reporting Foundation, where he served as director of accountancy relationships, working with accountancy bodies and leading accounting firms to increase the pace and scale of adoption of integrated reporting, integrated thinking and sustainability accounting standards across the globe. In his new role, Osborn will lead the AICPA’s ESG strategic initiative, which is designed to position the organization as a thought leader as sustainability-related financial disclosure reporting standards are crafted and implemented.
“Jeremy has deep experience in ESG, a strong record of accomplishment and direct experience of engaging with the relevant stakeholders in this category,” says vice president and managing director of learning, education and development for management accounting Ash Noah. “The main focus of his job will be to help both our management accounting and public accounting professionals integrate ESG matters into their strategy, operations and reporting.”
