Accounting for Sustainability launch Net Zero practical guide
Achieving net zero emissions in an organization will rely on the knowledge, skills and processes inherent within the finance function.
Where an organisation has made a net zero commitment, finance professionals are well placed to develop pathways to achieve net zero, setting interim targets, allocating funds, reporting progress and integrating net zero into decision making processes over time.
The Prince’s Accounting for Sustainability Project (A4S) has developed two guides with members of our CFO Leadership Network to share the practical steps that finance teams can take to support their organisation to progress towards net zero emissions.
The first guide is for finance teams from any sector, and the second focuses specifically on finance teams within banks. Both guides outline the net zero landscape, the business case for action and explore the practical steps that finance teams can take to support their organizations to progress towards net zero emissions. While the cross-sectoral guide is suitable for all finance teams regardless of industry, the bank-specific guide focuses specifically on net zero in the context of the bank’s financing activities.
Find out more about the guides on A4S' website.
Also, CFOs from around the world have signed A4S’s Net Zero Statement of Support, collectively committing to play their part in the transition towards a net zero emissions world.
