Project and Investment Appraisal for Sustainable Value Creation: Executive Summary
International Good Practice Guidance
Accountants in business play a crucial role in helping organizations ensure a systematic and analytical approach to project and investment appraisal. In practice, fundamental principles of corporate finance are often breached, leading to the destruction of value for shareholders and other stakeholders. Far too frequently, decisions ignore the costs and benefits associated with wider external impacts—social (e.g., labor practices), economic (e.g., in communities), and environmental (e.g., pollution). By introducing greater rigor, organizations can assess all important aspects of a project or investment. This guidance helps users take into account every aspect of the project or investment and consider all facets of sustainability.
