Showcasing Northern and Scottish businesses driving sustainability

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, are a fantastic opportunity for organisations and finance and accountancy professionals to showcase their commitment to sustainability, raise their profile within the business community in Newcastle, Teesside and Cumbria, 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 side as with new contacts!”
