THE ICAEW is the first professional body to join the Green Economy Coalition (GEC), a network of organisations committed to creating a sustainable and environment-focused economy.
The coalition includes the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and TEEB for Business among its members.
Richard Spencer, head of sustainability for ICAEW, said the GEC shared its commitment to a better quality of life for all, “within the limits of the planet”.
“The unifying theme of our sustainability thought leadership work is looking at how organisations, markets and other systems can provide sustainable outcomes. Our ambition is to drive these outcomes through behaviour change and, working in collaboration with the coalition, we can achieve far more.”
Oliver Greenfield, convenor of the Green Economy Coalition, said: “ICAEW get the big picture. They know that externalities compound together to create systemic risks for businesses, finance organisations, our economies and our broader society. They have shown consistent leadership in tackling these big issues, creating understanding, bold partnerships and real change. We are delighted to be working with them.”
