Sustainable finance – an inside look With Wim Bartels and Rami Feghali

Our latest episode is an exclusive discussion with the Chair of Accountancy Europe’s Sustainable Finance Group, Wim Bartels and the Vice-Chair of the same group, Rami Feghali. In this episode, we learn about how the accountancy profession is preparing for the EU’s shift to sustainable finance. Specifically, they address what is being done on the side of accountants to accommodate sustainability into corporate reporting. They discuss the practical challenges and opportunities for the profession which includes non-financial reporting & assurance and non-financial reporting standards. Please note that there are 3 key acronyms frequently mentioned throughout: ESG (Environmental, Social & Government), NFRD (non-financial reporting directive) and IAASB (International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board).
