A2B Symposium - Academic 2 Business - Research informing Business
19th November 2014, InterContinental Sydney, 117 Macquarie St, Sydney NSW, Australia
Professor Roger Burritt
Topic: Accounting for sustainability
The accountancy profession is in a state of transition. Roger scans the horizon in the new world with a focus on new systems of accounting, including Material Flow Cost Accounting, for which the latest International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) standard ISO 14051 has recently been released. The emerging systems are Environmental Management Accounting with its maturing progeny 'Water Management Accounting', and a new kid on the block 'Engineering Accounting'. But conventional accountants seem to be waiting in the wings rather than capitalizing on these opportunities. And can we take our Indigenous brothers and sisters with us?
