Sustainability and climate change efforts are prominent compliance matters, and are currently viewed on corporate agendas as key for increasing efficiency and a source of competitive advantage. Leading finance executives understand that climate change efforts cannot be separated from business and there is an urgent need to involve key decision makers in reporting on progress as it relates to the climate change agenda.

Professional accountants and finance executives are pressured to play a key role in preparing their companies for a new regime and reporting progress made in reducing emissions, whether directly or indirectly.

The Executive Education and License in Climate and Sustainability Reporting, developed by the Southern African Institute for Business Accountants and Regenesys School of Accounting Science, will equip finance leaders to confidently fulfil this role and will serve as proof of your competency in this field. The programme provides you with the knowledge, skills, professional direction and corporate strategy to assess changes in the environment, define a strategy to address them, identity opportunities of climate change and successfully report and disclose relevant climate matters.
