Course Overview
In today's world, companies face a unique set of challenges, from climate change and resource constraints to urbanization and technological innovation. Although financial statements provide valuable information about tangible assets and financial capital, increasingly investors are also interested in how companies manage sustainability issues that affect long-term value. Companies that report on sustainability can benefit from greater transparency, better risk management, improved long-term performance and a stronger, more valuable brand. Prof. Barbara Porco, director of Fordham University's Center for Professional Accounting Practices, updates us on the latest sustainability reporting initiatives, including the university's innovative partnership with the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board.
