The Green Accounting Survey

the green survey

The results of this survey will appear in the 5 July issue

Business is increasingly at the head of the drive to clean up the
environment, which means accountants are also having to take their
responsibilities seriously.

Indeed, Prince Charles recently became the first honorary member of the ICAEW
for work on his Accounting for Sustainability project; experts are working on a
new accounting standard for carbon emission, and the EU has its own project
looking at defining metrics to demonstrate the bottom line benefits of low
carbon emissions.

But how seriously is the profession taking these moves, and are they the
right way to go? Are accountants equipped to play such a large part? Can
accounting standards be a weapon for environmentalists?

Our 5 July issue will explore these issues and more, but if you want to take
part, fill in our online survey and you could be in with a chance winning £50 in
wine vouchers.
