Does the Green New Deal demand a new conceptual framework for accounting?

Posted on

I will be discussing the above issue at this event:

“Debating Nature’s Value” – 27 June at Chartered Accountants’ Hall

 ICAEW is partnering with the University of East Anglia and Anglia Ruskin University in a programme of discussions “Debating Nature’s Value”.  This is a grouping of academics largely from the arts and humanities who challenge the notion of natural capital. 

The topic for discussion is ‘Natural Capital- Key Part of Accountancy or Just a Political Slogan’- will involve Victor Anderson asking whether monetary valuation of natural capital can be precise enough to inform policy-making. This will be followed by Richard Murphy who will be discussing whether the accountancy profession as it stands can adapt to integrating natural capital into company accounts or if it will have to drastically change in response.

Timings: 12:30 – 14:30, 27th June (ICAEW, 1 Moorgate Place, London)
