Course Description

Sustainability Accounting is now a recognized professional skill of increasing importance in larger organizations. It is the process of finding, measuring and managing the material metrics for sustainable performance and risk management. The goal is to bring key metrics into regular financial statements for leaders to access key decision drivers and act on them.

Identifying the importance of the Sustainability Accounting, recognized institutions have taken following steps:

  • Over 90% of the Fortune 500 corporations are using sustainability accounting now.
  • The Big 4 accounting firms have recently (Oct 2020) announced a joint program to develop uniform sustainability accounting standards. They are following the path of the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) which has already published detailed metrics for 77 industry sectors.
  • The AICPA has created a standard for Attestation Engagements for Sustainability Reporting.
  • The International Federation of Accountants has published detailed implementation guidance (IFAC 2015: Sustainability Framework 2.0: Professional Accountants as Integrators).

This webinar covers following key topics: 

  • The origins of Sustainability Accounting
