The accountancy profession has increasingly evolved beyond the core function of providing accounting services. Accountants can help businesses identify cost-cutting opportunities through energy efficiency, and draw attention towards the strategic marketing and brand building benefits inherent in pursuing an agenda of corporate sustainability.

A new strategic initiative, sponsored by Chartered Professional Accountants of Canada (CPA Canada) and Natural Resources Canada (NRCan), will help companies identify both risks and opportunities and adapt to the effects of climate change.

NRCan is supporting the project under the Enhancing Competitiveness in a Changing Climate program.
