CDSB won the award for its efforts to provide investors with environmental information as accurately as financial information.
To win this category, contestants have to demonstrate commitment to sustainability in the financial accounting sector by being a driver for change and being an enabler for long term strategies for a more sustainable economy.
One juror commented about CDSB that “it has achieved a lot in a very short time, despite having limited resources”.
Mardi McBrien, CDSB’s Managing Director said: "We are honoured to receive the Sustainability Champion of the Year award. Our success is a testament to the potential for the accounting profession to foster sustainable economic, social and environmental systems using the established mainstream corporate reporting model."
