ICAS Sustainability Summit, in association with A4S

April 25 @ 4:00 pm - 6:30 pm BST

Sustainability Summit

Event summary

Join ICAS as they bring together sustainability experts and forward-thinking business leaders in Scotland’s capital, to address important questions on the readiness of business for the sustainability transition.

Following the success of last year’s inaugural summit in Westminster, ICAS have partnered with Accounting for Sustainability (A4S) on this must-attend event for professionals seeking practical insights to guide them on the path to sustainable business.

A specialist line-up of speakers and panellists, including representatives from the business community and beyond, will share their views on the future of sustainable business, the role of technology in the climate transition and the ever-changing sustainability reporting landscape. Attendees will be able to pose questions, with BBC broadcaster and journalist, Dr Vanessa Collingridge, hosting the discussion.

Along with an opportunity to network with like-minded individuals, this impactful event will also mark the launch of ICAS’ sustainability business network, giving attendees exclusive access to be among the first to join. This new forum will be a collaborative community where professionals can share and benefit from sustainability-related insights.

ICAS hope that you will join them to learn, network and be inspired.

Why are ICAS and A4S holding this event?

The accounting profession has an essential role to play in facilitating action in the business and finance sectors to navigate the just transition to net zero.

ICAS is committed to highlighting sustainability risks and opportunities to our members, the business community and the wider public. A4S was established by HM King Charles III in 2004 to make sustainable business, business as usual, through work with the global finance and accounting community. ICAS and A4S hope that this collaborative event will inspire business leaders to scale up progress towards a more sustainable economy.
