FINANCIAL leadership which drives sustainable organisations was recognised at the Finance for the Future Awards.
The Finance for the Future Awards, founded by ICAEW and HRH The Prince of Wales’s Accounting for Sustainability Project (A4S), recognise organisations which are transforming the way traditional business is done, using financial leadership to create more resilient business models.
Scottish Hydro Electric Transmission picked up the large business award for its holistic approach to measuring the total social, environmental and economic impacts of major capital projects along with the visible leadership from both the finance director and sustainability accountant.
The public sector and third sector award went to Sussex Community NHS Trust. “It was clear that the leadership from the finance director and his team in driving the project was key to its success,” the institute said.
