There is no “opt-out clause” for management accountants on environmental, social, and governance (ESG) information, says Association Chair and CIMA President Paul Ash, FCMA, CGMA, in this final podcast in an FM series on ESG. Ash describes how his formative years led to developing businesses focusing on environmentally clean energy and real-time measurement of emissions. Ash says management and public accountants both need to deliver on ESG compliance, and collaboration with engineers and architects will enable businesses to create workplaces in line with their ESG goals and protect workers’ health.

What you’ll learn from this episode:

  • What has driven Ash’s pursuit of clean energy and reliable emissions data.
  • Management accountants’ opportunity to lead on ESG reporting.
  • Why ESG compliance is an issue for both public and management accountants.
  • The potential of clean coal and nuclear technology.
  • How ESG encompasses creating a healthy workplace for employees.
