Welcome to the Accounting for Sustainability Community

Sustainability issues such as climate change and the over-consumption of the Earth’s finite natural resources – increasingly living off the Earth’s capital rather than its income – are challenges that are likely to lead to major changes in the way we live and work, in our economic model and in the level and type of government regulation. In the face of these challenges, it is increasingly important for organizations to understand how such issues will impact on their continuity and long-term success, and to be able to communicate clearly both the impacts and the company’s response to investors and other stakeholders.

The Prince’s Accounting for Sustainability Project (A4S) have created this community website to encourage the exchange of ideas and recommendations on how environmental and social performance can be better connected with strategy and financial performance, and embedded in day-to-day operations.
