GUIDES for the finance and accounting communities to help implement sustainability into their processes and decision-making has been produced by The Prince’s Accounting for Sustainability Project (A4S).
The four guides encompass key areas around risk, audit, investor relations and sustainability professionals, including natural and social capital accounting: an introduction for finance teams.
John Rogers, CFO of Sainsbury’s (pictured), one of those to have produced the guides, said CFOs have a “crucial role to play” in helping our businesses to understand the value of values, and sustainability.
“It can be a challenge knowing where to start, so these guides are designed to give CFOs practical advice using real case studies of how others have tackled the issues,” he added.
In 2015, the network is undertaking new projects to develop additional guidance, including integrated management reporting and embedding sustainability into budgeting and forecasting.
