After the success of last year’s inaugural regional heat, plans are already well underway for a second event in 2016. Championed by Past President, Paul Adderley, who has been instrumental in putting sustainable thinking on the IMS agenda, next year’s programme kicks off with an event designed to raise awareness and encourage businesses to get involved in sustainable thinking and be recognised for it.
Now in its fifth year, Finance for the Future was founded by ICAEW and HRH The Prince of Wales’ Accounting for Sustainability Project (A4S). The programme recognises leadership from finance teams that embed sustainability within their organisations to create resilient business models.
The annual flagship event, the Finance for the Future awards, is a fantastic opportunity for organisations and finance and accountancy professionals to showcase their commitment to sustainability, raise their profile within the business community in Scotland as well as connect and share best practice with a community of business leaders and engaged finance and accountancy professionals.
“Showcasing raised our profile in our target market; and networking was a great way to meet multinationals who wanted to work with us. Being a SME finalist in London provided our MD a fantastic opportunity to explore business ideas with new contacts!” Karen Ogilvy, Finance Director, Castle Group Scotland, 2015 SME finalist and winner of the Scottish Heat
Hosted by the University of Edinburgh Business School, an awareness-raising event will take place on Tuesday 16 February 2016.
