As a growing number of businesses and investors focus on Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors, the role of the accountant is changing to incorporate sustainability matters, be it from a financial performance or financial reporting perspective. This CPE session will provide an overview of the ESG landscape, the main regulatory changes taking place and the implications for the modern accountant.


The session will cover:

  • A historical review of the current state of play
  • An overview of ESG and the implications on the way we work
  • An overview of the regulatory landscape
  • An introduction to the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD), the EU Taxonomy and Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR)


As the pressure for action on various sustainability matters mounts, the business community and its professionals need to become familiar with the ESG context and increase their skills and knowledge on the topic.
