27 July 2015

In the August issue of The CA, we meet Lord Smith and get his perspective on a busy few years, from the triumph of Glasgow 2014 to the negotiating table where a new deal for Scotland was thrashed out.

From chairing the body hosting the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow to brokering a deal on new powers for Scotland, Lord Smith of Kelvin has been one of the highest profile figures in UK business in recent times. Now, as chairman of the Green Investment Bank, he's been tasked with bringing in private sector capital to expand the bank's reach and give it even more clout in the renewable energy and energy efficiency markets.

Also in the August issue, we take a look at the changing factors surrounding the company car and weigh up the key question: what sort of fuel is best for the environment and best for your, and your employer's, pocket?

We examine the latest trends in business tax software, summarise reaction to George Osborne's Summer Budget and report on a round table discussion on how far environmental, social and sustainability reporting could be integrated into the conventional company report and accounts in the near future.

Also in this issue, you can meet Maven Capital's Jock Gardiner and find out what impressions EY's Greg Hopkinson took away from his assignment to Stockholm, Sweden.
