Access Accounting reveals that becoming greener is in the top three business drivers this year

Accountants see a ‘greening’ of their company as the third biggest business
driver over the next 12 months a survey by Access Accounting has revealed.

Accountancy IT company Access, which launched its Carbon Accounting software
last year, questioned its customers as well as other members of the accountancy
profession what they thought the biggest business drivers were over the coming
12 months.

Unsurprisingly reducing costs was ranked highest at 47% followed by surviving
in second 38% and becoming greener as third with 21% of the votes.

Over 60% felt that their company should be monitoring is carbon emissions and
around the same number not aware as to whether or not its company did monitor
emissions. Only 34% of those surveyed have a dedicated team-member responsible
for reduction of its carbon footprint.
