Programme outline

Corporate sustainability is one of the big trends in financial reporting. Unfortunately, a lot of sustainability reporting is an alphabet soup of acronyms and buzzwords, says one national media journalist. Nick Huber, an experienced freelance journalist, who has written about corporate sustainability for the Financial Times and accountancy publications, will argue that management accountants can improve the quality of sustainability reporting and create new career opportunities for themselves and their businesses.

In his presentation, Nick will talk about his journalism experience of reporting on sustainability, the frustration of trying to untangle the jargon and compare companies’ sustainability based on reports. He will discuss why so many slightly different guidelines and standards and frameworks for sustainability reporting can be confusing for journalists and everyone involved in the reports.

He’ll also talk about how sustainability will become increasingly important in management accounting. Improving its quality and making it more accessible requires excellent communication skills as well as traditional accounting and financial reporting skills, Nick will argue.
