A4S operates a series of global networks to concentrate activity and inspire collaboration.
- The CFO Leadership Network is the first grouping of its kind globally. Launched by HRH The Prince of Wales at St. James’s Palace in December 2013, the Network brings together a group of leading CFOs from large businesses seeking to embed the management of environmental and social issues into business processes and strategy.
- The Accounting Bodies Network (ABN) is a group of accounting bodies from across the globe, brought together to help achieve a common approach to accounting for sustainability. The ABN represents 2.4 million accountants in 181 countries, making up two-thirds of accountants globally.
- The Asset Owners Network brings together Chairs of UK pension funds, their pooling partners, investment committees and endowments to explore the relevance of material social and environmental risks and opportunities with peers.
- The Circles of Practice are more informal regional or sector level groups which provide finance leaders with the opportunity to share and exchange information and knowledge, rather than to work on specific projects.
