WWF in green call to firms

The UK chairman of the World Wildlife Fund has called on accountancy firms to get their houses in order to tackle the green agenda

Ed Smith said: ‘Professional service firms have a huge role to play, but
those which are planning to advise others on sustainable business must get their
own house in order first to pass the credibility test. Our challenge to the
profession worldwide is to build climate consultancy into their client services
and exploit all opportunities for a low-carbon economy,’ he added.

Smith claims firms should lead the way on climate change, by advising
governments to roll out policies that provide businesses with the tools they
need to develop long-term commercial strategies.

Richard Chaplin, Managing Partners’ Forum executive director added: ‘The
professions play a vital role in promoting clients’ carbon efficiency.’
