Course Description

Climate change is real, and it is having an increasing impact on organizations across the world. Accountants can play a key role in supporting their organizations to understand the costs and benefits of adapting to the impacts of climate change, and to carry out investment appraisal on the opportunities that climate change presents.

This course covers the main impacts of climate change on organizations, from the move to sustainable investing; to changing to zero-carbon; to the opportunities for technological innovation; to increasing regulation; and so on.

For each impact, the course identifies the opportunities for organizations and how the finance team can support the organization through this aspect of change.

The key message is that accountants need to remain flexible and develop their skills to understand the potential costs and benefits that climate change will inevitably bring to their organization.

Learning objectives

  • To recognize the Climate Change Business Trends
  • To recall the Circular Economy
  • To recognize the Zero Carbon Living & sustainable investing
