Sustainable business management means operating in a way that recognizes resources are limited and valuable.
Resources must be managed in a way that sustains and builds value for all stakeholders that contribute to an organization. Accounting and finance professionals, based on a foundation of ethical principles, have the skills and capabilities to lead the global transition to deliver on environmental, social, and governance aspects of performance and value – delivering profits with purpose.
Sustainable business management aligns will all aspects of the IMA Management Accounting Competency Framework. It reflects reporting and control, strategy, business partnering and cross-disciplinary collaboration, technology, and leadership.
