Five years ago, green bonds were conceptual. Today, they’ve changed the investment landscape. EY Global Climate Change and Sustainability Services leaders discuss this dramatic transformation.
Climate change and sustainability are becoming more important to governments, businesses and people everywhere.
On the one hand, businesses face increasingly complex regulatory requirements – that differ by country and industry – as well as the weight of public expectations. On the other hand, the climate change and sustainability agenda presents companies opportunities to generate revenues and cut costs. For many organizations, striking this balance means embedding climate change and sustainability into the hearts of their business. Only by doing so can they meet short-term objectives and create long-term stakeholder value.
EY can help. Our Climate Change and Sustainability Services team is grounded in our core skills in assurance, tax, transactions and advisory. On top of that we have the specific knowledge to help you understand business and regulatory threats and opportunities, explore and execute commercial transactions, monitor performance and assure public disclosures on progress. You'll receive a tailored service supported by global methodologies to address issues relating to your specific needs. Wherever you are in the world, we will provide the right professionals to support you.
Certified Training on the new GRI Standards
EY, a Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Certified Training Partner, is currently offering two-day training courses on the new GRI Standards, and the relevant changes from the GRI G4 Sustainability Reporting Guidelines.
The GRI Standards, announced on 19 October 2016, are the first global standards for sustainability reporting. They feature a modular, interrelated structure, and represent the global best practice for reporting on a range of economic, environmental and social impacts.
A certificate of completion will be sent directly to participants from the GRI organization.
