Embedding climate change into financial management – climate-related reporting for accountants
Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP)
About the CPD course
Accountants are already well-equipped to play an essential role in preparing company policies; developing business cases; and in identifying; measuring and managing climate-related business risks. This includes developing and using management accountancy systems to collate climate-related data and information with the same rigour as financial data and information. Accountants can guide reporting entities to meet the demands of increased transparency; by helping to provide and present relevant and reliable information in a meaningful; consistent and comparable manner. This course demonstrates the role of accountants and offers practical advice about how you can embed climate change into your everyday role.
