In the October edition of AB, we continue to feature articles supporting ACCA’s current theme ‘Rethinking sustainable business’, with an interview with Dani Marunović FCCA, CFO of the Global Reporting Initiative.

We learn how the GRI seeks to enable organisations to use a global common language to report their climate-related impacts. And Marunović tells of her desire throughout her professional career to work with organisations that can make a difference.

In the same vein, AB spoke with financial services professionals about the importance of ESG in the banking sector. They spoke to us about how they are tackling data and disclosure challenges in the wake of a European Commission report.

And as we head towards COP26, check out how important the role of the accountant will be in fighting climate change.

You can also read the views from Boriana Stoynova FCCA, internal audit director at Ingram Micro Benelux, and Teo Trenkov FCCA, senior corporate finance analytics manager at EY, California.

You will also find features on topics such as the tax impact on international cricket, and pitching with passion.

Don’t forget you can hear more about sustainability plus other trends and developments, and earn up to 20 CPD units, at this year’s ‘Accounting for the Future’ conference. See the programme for the virtual event, which runs from 23–25 November. To attend, register here, or watch on demand.
