Planet earth towards sun.

IMA® (Institute of Management Accountants) recently conducted a survey to get a sense of senior finance leadership’s views on climate change. Asked if they believe climate change is having an impact on the environment, 65% say it is while 29% believe it isn’t. The remaining respondents are unsure. Changes companies are making to meet the challenges ahead include:

 

39%

Increasing energy efficiency

 

24%

Implementing sustainability performance measures

 

20%

Implementing stricter controls on output of pollutants

 

20%

Measuring their carbon footprint

 

20%

Encouraging green commuting (telecommuting, carpooling, park and ride, etc.)
