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.
My philosophy is to inspire, challenge and support change. I have nearly 30 years experience as a business author and consultant. I write the content of online business courses for Nelson Croom Ltd - www.accountingcpd.net.
More courses are in production for publication in 2019, including two bringing the Agile philosophy to planning and accounting. I also write and deliver webinars for clients, with the "Innovation Masterclass" and "Creative Problem Solving" for ACCA in the summer. As a consultant, I specialise in process improvement based on the Lean and Agile philosophies. I facilitate improvement teams and provide expertise in performance measurement and management; problem solving; and process mapping.
