ICAEW launches green business training course

Corporate responsibility lessons to be learned over the internet

The Institute of Chartered Accountants of England and Wales has launched an
online training course on ‘sustainable’ business.

The five-module course, which was developed by KPMG and mining giant Anglo
America, covers topics including making business more environmentally friendly
and corporate social responsibility.

The course reflects growing pressure on business to take green issues and
social responsibility more seriously.

‘We believe this is the first e- learning programme to address the financial
perspectives of business sustainability,’ said ICAEW chief executive Michael
Izza. ‘By developing this e-learning programme the accountancy profession offers
their expertise to this debate by helping businesses to develop the tools and
provide the information needed to assess how their efforts are contributing to a
sustainable world.’

The institute has yet to announce a price for the course but said two of the
five modules are free.
