Shownotes

Today, we dive into ESG: Environmental, Social & Governance. Investors are increasingly applying these non-financial factors as they investigate which public companies they will invest in and regulators are increasingly requiring that companies include these types of factors in their financial statements. There are plenty opportunities for accounting and finance professionals in this new area.

In this episode, I speak with Alyssa Rade, Chief Sustainability Officer at Sustain.Life, which offers solutions that are uniquely designed to make taking climate action easier and more affordable for companies of all kinds. She helped me understand how wide ranging the implications of ESG really are. We talk about what ESG is and what it isn't; what all this means for CPAs in public practice, business & industry, those in public companies and private, for investors and auditors - there's so much to consider and discuss. Listen in!
