ACCA won the award after helping raise the profile of sustainable development and corporate social responsibility among companies and the accounting professions, both in the UK and around the world.
The association was recognised for encouraging companies to provide details on those issues in their financial statements and annual reports.
The Queen’s awards were traditionally a celebration of manufacturing export success, but this year the services sector dominated the awards.
ACCA founded its own environmental awards scheme back in 1991 and earlier this month it announced the shortlist of this year’s awards.
