In today's economy, we take resources from the Earth, manufacture items from them, and finally discard them as garbage - the process is linear. In a circular economy, on the other hand, we prevent waste from being created in the first place.
Accounting and financing are critical to the success of circular businesses and to achieving sustainable development. Creating circular businesses is a key path to accelerate the circular transformation and achieve major climate targets like net-zero emissions. However, there are some key challenges in implementing circular accounting approaches to capture the value of circular business models and help circular businesses be successful. These challenges will be discussed in detail in this session. 

Specific topics to be covered during the session

  • What is circular economy
  • What are the challenges of supporting the Circular Economy in financial accounting
  • What are the benefits of incorporating Circular Economy in financial reporting
  • What is carbon neutrality
  • How can businesses contribute towards carbon neutrality.


Accountants are usually the first port of call for most business owners when they need to evaluate the feasibility of a project/product or to get general business advice. However, accountants might not have the time to focus on some areas such as environmental issues, meaning that they might not be in a position to properly guide their clients. This session will give a good general background on the topic while still entering into the details of the subject.  

Target Audience

  • Accountants and prospective accountants who work mainly on the provision of financial reporting beyond financial statements.
  • Accountants and prospective accountants in general.
  • Business advisors.
  • Business owners and self-employed persons who would like to transform their business into a more sustainable one.
