  • Accountants critical to climate change response – "…an essential element in addressing climate change is how businesses allocate and manage their resources for the production of goods and services. Accountants are the managers of strategic business resources, and as such make crucial decisions on how and where these resources are allocated.

I've long argued that the role of carbon management within a business will fall to the accounts department (thus suggesting accounting systems should embrace this as a new business opportunity). Kate Brent from CPA Australia bolsters the case.
