The world is facing extreme environmental changes and incidents that have a negative effect on business and communities they operate in. Climate change and increase in temperature rising sea levels, loss of biodiversity, air, land, and water pollution amongst other impacts that affect the world are starting to take precedence in the Board room and strategy sessions worldwide.

With the inception of regulation such as Carbon Tax in South Africa, we are seeing top emitters finding ways to mitigate their impact and find alternative ways to offset their emissions. Incorporating environmental sustainability into strategic and operational plans is increasing and BDO can help you with that.
