The whole financial system has a crucial role to play in achieving net zero global greenhouse gas emissions.
CFOs and their finance teams are key to delivering net zero – providing information needed for driving decisions, allocating funds and leading interactions with the capital markets.
The financial services sector also plays a critical role in redirecting finance towards climate-aligned solutions and away from activities that accelerate the climate emergency. With growing numbers of organizations committing to net zero, the conversation has shifted beyond the question of why organizations should aim for net zero greenhouse gas emissions and the focus is now on the practicalities of how to achieve it.
At A4S, we work with finance teams, accounting professionals and the capital markets to create guidance and generate action to help achieve a net zero economy. By doing so, we aim to help finance professionals do their part to prevent a worsening climate crisis, mitigate risks and seize the opportunities presented by the energy transition.
