Accounting firm recruits green arm

Ernst & Young is hoping to take advantage of a surge in sustainability
accounting, recruiting 300 advisers to a new division,

reports.

The Big Four firm has also brought about 100 staff from its consulting,
audit, tax and corporate finance divisions to form the new division, which will
take advantage of the perceived accounting growth area.
