As professional management accountants, CIMA members and registered students throughout the world have a duty to observe the highest standards of conduct and integrity, and to uphold the good standing and reputation of the profession. Research and activity in the field of business ethics and sustainability, the growing influence of investors, consumers, employees and wider society, all point to the necessity of embedding wider ethical considerations into strategy and performance measurement.

Management accountants have a specific role in not only upholding their related institute's code of ethics, but also in acting as a role model and influencer in regard to ethical practice and promoting responsible business for the long term.
