Impact Accounting & Finance Towards Sustainable Finance Models

Earth Room, 18 January, Wednesday, 2023, 09:30-11:00 CET

The financial and accounting systems that underpin our economy focus on short term financial outcomes and do not adequately reflect the dependency of our economic success on the health and stability of our communities and the natural environment.

Companies, investors and governments are recognising that long term sustainable performance relies on an understanding of the interdependency between financial, social, human and natural capitals. Action and leadership is needed to drive change so that sustainability becomes embedded in organizations’ strategy, operations and reporting.

Experts from accounting and finance (CFOs, the global accounting community, investors, policymakers, business schools) will discuss how to  better harness finance for the good of people and the planet. This session will provide guidance and convene senior leadership to inspire action, transform decision making and scale up, and showcase best practices.
