Event description
An event for all accounting professionals and academics of any seniority working in all sectors – who care about the planet!

About this Event

Accountants have a massive role to play in helping to create a sustainable future for us all. They need to be part of the green solution now, as there is no Planet B….

Following the success of our previous sell-out accountancy conferences, London South Bank University and PQ magazine have joined together again to host a packed one-day conference looking to see if we are accounting for extinction; whether its time to declare a carbon emergency; and, why it’s important to save both the accountants and the bees!

The workshops throughout the day fall under the following three streams and you can choose your workshops on the day of the event:

  • Stream 1 – Green Accounting & Social Responsibility
  • Stream 2 – Taxes and Ethics
  • Stream 3 – Careers and You

We have now confirmed the majority of speakers and we will continue to update these as they are confirmed so keep watching this space!

This is a truly unique opportunity to become involved in the debate and help shape the future.
