A Necessary Read- Six Capitals by Libby Gleeson-White

post-image
An accessible timely and fascinating account of the revolution going on in the world of finance - and how accountants really can save the planet. Climate change is here and capitalism is implicated: it's programmed to privilege profit and growth over human communities and the living earth. Six Capitals charts the rise of four movements designed to overthrow capitalism as we know it: multi-capital accounting, for society, nature and profit; the push for a new corporation legally bound to benefit nature and society while making a profit.

Financial reporting organisations worldwide are working on ways to reflect these values for the reasons Jane outlines. IdeaSpies was involved.
