AICPA Offers Executive Workshop on Sustainability and Risk Management

April 1, 2013

NEW YORK (April 1, 2013) - Sustainability issues can impact a company’s bottom line, so executives need to take notice—and know when to start planning.

Energy independence, supply chain integrity and abundant product resources aren’t typically subjects captured in routine financial information, but their presence—or absence—can play a pivotal role in the long-term viability of a business. To help executives stay ahead of the curve, the American Institute of CPAs is offering a new, two-day workshop this spring that offers practical insight into the analysis of sustainability risks and opportunities. 

The Event:  AICPA Sustainability Workshop: Expanding Enterprise-Wide Risk Oversight to Consider Sustainability-Related Risks and Opportunities is a high-level gathering designed for board directors, CEOs, CFOs and other senior leadership.

Date and Location: May 2-3, AICPA headquarters, 1211 Avenue of the Americas, New York, N.Y.

Agenda: Participation in the workshop is limited to foster interaction between attendees and subject experts.   

·         Professors from North Carolina State University’s Poole College of Management, which has developed substantial expertise in the incorporation of sustainability concerns into enterprise risk management, will lead most of the sessions.

·         Panelists from Walmart, Standard & Poor’s and PricewaterhouseCoopers will discuss the future of sustainability initiatives.

Media Access:  Reporters are welcome to attend sessions. Advance press registration is required. Please contact Jeff May, (212) 596-6122,
