Verónica Ribeiro and Sónia Monteiro, members of the CICF and professors of the Accounting Department of ESG, were nominated Ambassadors of the ODS Portugal Alliance to promote the UN Sustainable Development Goal.
The ODS Portugal Alliance was created by the Portuguese network United Nations Global Compact Network Portugal (UN GCNP) with the support of the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) headquarters in New York, and brings together different organizations and personalities of Portuguese society with the aim of contributing for the achievement of the 17 Sustainable Development Objectives (ODS) defined by the UN Agenda 2030.
This appointment comes from the recognition of research work in the area of Accounting and social responsibility in the public and private sector, developed by the teachers at the Center for Research in Accounting and Taxation (CICF) of the IPCA.
The main nature of the Ambassador’s activity is to disseminate information and coordinate initiatives that allow progress in the implementation of the ODS, within the organizational and methodological framework of the Alliance, as a voluntary position in the exercise of actions of collective interest.
The Public Presentation Ceremony of the Ambassadors took place on January 22, 2019, at Culturgest in Lisbon, as part of the Conference “GCNP – 15 Years of Commitment to Sustainability / 3rd Anniversary of the ODS Portugal Alliance”.
