Richard Murphy: How accountants could help save the planet: The case for sustainability accounting

Speaker:  Richard Murphy

COP 26 saw the launch of a new accounting body to help companies prove their green credentials. But is the accounting profession doing enough to hold big business to account for its carbon emissions, and what should accountants really be doing if business and the planet are to be considered what accountants would describe as a ‘going concern’?
Richard Murphy is Professor of Accounting at Sheffield University Management School, CEO of Tax Research LLP and the Corporate Accountability Network and a columnist for The National.
