Responsible Finance and Accounting
Performance and Profit for Better Business, Society and Planet

 

In this book, leading researchers and practitioners in the field of CSR, from the schools and corporate partners of the Council on Business & Society, give you key insights into green finance and social and environmental reporting, national, international and corporate stakes in green taxonomy and carbon tax, and triple capital accounting. It also details how to model effective and low-cost social impact reporting, ethics in finance and accounting, and strategies for microfinance and finance-related social innovation. Each insight is accompanied by key takeaways, food for thought and micro-case study sections.

This accessible book will be a valuable resource for scholars, instructors and upper-level students across finance and accounting as well as corporate social responsibility and business ethics. It will also serve as a guide for professionals aiming to deepen their understanding of new finance and accounting practice.

“[The Council's] Global Voice – yet another boring think tank, you might say? Not at all! The content is professional, exhaustive and explained. The tone is interesting, certain articles are wittily pitched and the style is fluid. Highly recommended!”
