What role does the accountancy profession play in accelerating a just and prosperous low-carbon transition?
How can it not only better assess and disclose the realities of a climate-adjusted risk landscape but also, critically, lead and support the business model and strategy transformation required to radically re-purpose how companies create and protect value?
In what ways can it improve how it collaborates with others to influence the transition to low-carbon economies, including examining trade-offs, and supporting investment in climate-intelligent innovation for climate adaptation and mitigation?
An interactive panel debate with accounting, finance and business leaders. Panelists will briefly share their experiences before opening up to a question and answer discussion with live polling and audience Q&A taking place throughout.
