Accountants play a critical role in helping business adapt to climate change. While businesses often approach climate change issues via the sustainability department, the finance team is critical to developing robust solutions.

On June 16, 2015 in Toronto, NBS and CPA Canada will host a breakfast seminar to help accountants navigate climate change adaptation. Join experts from CPA Canada, Ernst & Young LLP, and TD Bank Group among others to learn how accountants can plan for and adapt to the impacts of climate change.
