Join us on 3 December to chat about rethinking business for a sustainable recovery.
ACCA UK has been running a series of virtual chats to offer members space to connect and talk with peers in specific industries. Through these virtual chats, members are encouraged to share their journeys of success, discuss challenges their business is facing and discuss their outlook for the future - identifying support needed from others and ACCA.
These virtual conversations support members in different sectors and we are now extending it to the practice sector.
The chats are based on interactive discussion and sharing of experiences.
The first session will be at 10.30 on 3 December on the topic of rethinking business for a sustainable recovery. To be a sustainable organisation means being committed to minimising environmental impact while putting social responsibility at the heart of strategy. Professional accountants have a vital role in building this sustainable world because sustainable businesses deliver financial returns while generating positive value for society and being environmentally responsible for the planet.
Jimmy Greer - Head of Sustainability at ACCA – will set the scene for the discussion before Yogesh Patel and Alastair Barlow from ACCA UK’s Practitioners’ Network Panel lead the discussion.
We will discuss:
What steps are SMPs taking to deal with the COVID 19 crisis and recover – both for themselves and their clients? What further steps can be/need to be taken?
What are the most pressing ethical and sustainability challenges of today for SMPs and their clients?
How can SMPs do business in a way that balances people, planet and profits? How can they help their clients to do the same?
What’s our role – what can we do, as professional accountants to create a more ethical and sustainable world?
