Climate accounting is an integral part of business growth and sustainability. Global demand for environmentally responsible and ethical business practices has been amplified due to the growing threat of climate change. The process of measuring, reporting, and verifying the impact of climate change for businesses is complex, demanding a greater role for climate accountants. Businesses need to understand their own emissions and damage profiles to set emissions targets, draw climate adaptation plans, and track their progress.
