The FEE have published 7 policy statements this year. They believe that accountants have an important role to play in supporting the adoption of a strategic approach to sustainability. They even call on the IASB and IAASB to play a leading role in the development of standards on, for example,carbon emissions information and assurance on sustainability reporting.
I believe accounting is shifting beyond the economic and must begin to embrace social and environmental issues more enthusiastically. I was disappointed to read CIMA's publication "Making a success of your business: essential checklists" as there was no explicit reference to sustainability issues. I think CIMA could do more and wonder if others feel the same. I for one would be willing to contribute material and ideas, is there anyone else out there?
