Sep 29, 2021 | New York, NY | English
IFAC and ACCA last week hosted their third annual Climate Week NYC event: Plugging the Net-Zero Information Gap. The event brought together finance and accounting professionals to better understand the information gap that exists between business and investors and what could be done to address it.
A recording of the event and takeaways are now available.
“The consensus is clear: The work required to transition business and deliver quality information to investors is no easy task, but the dire nature of the climate crisis requires action now,” said Kevin Dancey, IFAC CEO. “Climate literacy and collaboration, both within an organization and with stakeholders, are both essential to enact plans that will result in businesses setting and achieving net-zero goals.”
