Creating Value in a Climate Emergency

As the global economy faces many significant challenges in the wake of COVID-19, climate change remains the defining issue of our time. To learn more about best practices for a sustainable recovery from the pandemic and explore the role of business and accountancy in addressing the global climate emergency, please join IFAC and ACCA for our second annual Climate Week NYC event.

  • Creating long-term value through climate-resilient business strategies during and beyond COVID-19
  • How finance teams can support businesses and organizations to address climate risk and the associated challenges; and
