Amazon forest fires, devastating floods, glaciers dying: 2019 has seen alarming headlines about the climate crisis.

Governments and businesses are looking for solutions, with summits bringing leaders together to forge remedies for the future.

But what role does the accountancy profession play in all this? How should accountants respond in their roles as key business decision-makers and influencers - and as experts on financial and, increasingly, non-financial information? Are they adequately responding to the growing demand for more environmental, social and governance disclosures? What are the ethical dimensions at play here? And how is the profession as a whole responding?

This webinar is based on a new ACCA report launching during Climate Week (23 to 29 September 2019) called Social and environmental value creation, which examines the ways in which climate risk, natural capital, business model innovation and social impact measurement and evaluation can be addressed by finance teams.
