About the course

As global awareness of sustainability and climate-related issues grows, accountants may find themselves increasingly tasked with tackling compliance and reporting related to environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues.

This course explores the impact of ESG regulation on businesses and the difficulties arising from the inconsistency of ESG regulation at local and international levels. It also looks at the role of accountants in implementing compliance and adapting your core skills to analyse ESG data, identify financial risk and help organisations to meet reporting requirements.
