Last week after finding out that The International Federation of Accountants  had developed a a Sustainability Framework for Professional Accountants.  I wanted to find out what other resources they had for green accountants.  I found out that they published two reports that you can download for free.  See what they have below:

Why Sustainability Counts for Professional Accountants in Business – This paper put out by International Federation of Accountants Professional Accountants in Business  provides an overview of enterprise sustainability and sets out the business/financial case for addressing sustainable development at the enterprise level in terms of the risks that sustainable development poses and the opportunities which it brings. It also seeks to identify the main sustainability related roles which the professional accountant in business might occupy, either today, tomorrow or at some more distant future time.   Get it at the  International Federation of Accountants  web site.

At the Heart of Sustainability –  This paper put out by International Federation of Accountants Professional Accountants in Business features interviews conducted by Robert Bruce, a leading accountancy journalist, with professional accountants operating in business throughout the world to seek their views on the role of professional accountants in business in sustainability.  Get At the Heart of Sustainability on the International Federation of Accountants web site.
