Preparing Future-Ready Professionals
Why Sustainability Counts for Professional Accountants in Business
Jul 31, 2006 | Surveys & Reports
This information paper provides an overview of enterprise sustainability and sets out the business/financial case for addressing sustainable development at the enterprise level in terms of the risks that sustainable development poses and the opportunities which it brings. It also seeks to identify the main sustainability related roles which the professional accountant in business might occupy, either today, tomorrow or at some more distant future time. The paper was published simultaneously with an information paper entitled Professional Accountants in Business - At the Heart of Sustainability, in which high profile professional accountants in business explain how sustainability issues impact on them.
