A 360 view on Sustainable Corporate Governance with MEP Heidi Hautala

Before the summer break, we present you a special episode at the end of this season: On June 21 Accountancy Europe held a virtual fireside chat between European Parliament Vice-President Heidi Hautala and Olivier Boutellis-Taft, CEO of Accountancy Europe, which we turned into a podcast episode.

In anticipation of the Commission’s proposals on Sustainable Corporate Governance, Heidi Hautala and Olivier Boutellis-Taft discussed the expected reform and how it can drive the transition to a sustainable economy.

They touched on what the European Parliament is doing and why it’s now the duty of the Commission to be more ambitious and make the corporate governance revolution a success in this crucial final decade of climate change.

Hear now how the charismatic Heidi Hautala also puts the accountancy profession in the hot seat to answer how our profession can make the next “Brussel moment” happen!
