Accountants create green team for environmental reporting

Thames Valley business advisers to capitalise on the growth of environmental businesses with new specialist team

James Cowper has created a specialist team to advise businesses working in
the ‘green’ economy.

The firm already has a strong track record in the environmental sector but
believes green issues are set to become a greater focus for mainstream
businesses too – as the scrutiny on environmental practices and reporting
increases.

James
Cowper
, through its expertise in the technology, corporate finance and
agricultural sectors, believes it is well placed to provide the type of advice
clients will need.

‘Measuring carbon footprints is on course to become a standard requirement
for companies listed on the London Stock Exchange. It is not inconceivable that
carbon reporting will become part of the annual financial reporting cycle,’ said
Paddy Thompson, who heads up the new team.

James Cowper already works with a cross-section of ‘green’ businesses. These
range from manufacturers of sustainable building products through to AIM listed
businesses exploring innovative energy technologies as well as advising local
authorities reassessing their approach to municipal waste streams.

‘Opportunities abound for organisations willing to embrace change and
prepared to anticipate and exploit new legislative parameters,’ added Thompson.

‘The green economy is all about investing now to create sustainable long term
benefits in reduced costs and increased profits.’
