Capex

5th August 2019
Current sustainability related trends are receiving increasing social, economic and political focus which is putting the business environment under pressure. The risk and regulatory landscapes are changing, meaning the traditional corporate finance techniques used to support capex investment decisions are becoming outdated and at risk of no longer being fit for purpose.

A4S and the IIRC are hosting the third in a series of webinars to support finance teams to address the practical issues of integrating sustainability into financial processes and decision making. This webinar looks at Capex and will introduce practical concepts, tools and examples on how traditional financial return-based investment decisions can be broadened, to make sustainability issues more explicit and transparent. We will explore how this can lead to more cost effective and resilient investment decisions.
