This is complemented by organisations' increased awareness of the importance of sustainable business practices. At the same time there is a growing understanding that accountants and financial managers have an important role to play in this regard, which is demonstrated by the work that is being done by leading accountancy bodies to engage the profession in sustainability issues.
