About the course

Sustainability has been a business-critical topic for a long time now, and itís not going away. Each organisation is under increasing pressure to implement environmentally friendly practices and it's making CEOs and directors turn to their accountants. It's our role to look for cost-effective solutions that boost business sustainability credentials and help make financial decisions that put sustainability at the centre of the decision-making process.

This course explores how you can get involved in sustainable finance and provides a step-by-step guide for planning and implementing a sustainable project. You will be able to thoroughly assess an organisation's sustainability and provide suggestions to improve its impact.
