Accounting for Sustainability: Leveraging Incentives to Drive Profits and Reduce Risk

Wednesday, October 26th, 9:30am- 12:30pm EDT / Streamed Panel Discussion: 7:00am - 9:00am PDT / 10:00am - 12:00pm EDT / 16:00 - 18:00 (Paris-Frankfurt)

Meeting in New York



In recent years, government has carved out a variety of grants, tax credits, and rebates for corporate sustainability upgrades on Federal, State, and Local levels. Where is the money for these sustainability initiatives? How can your business apply these incentives to justify environmental impact reductions and drive profits? Is your company at risk if these incentives disappear? Our panelists will discuss which opportunities are out there, and which could be eliminated in the near future. In some cases, grants and tax breaks provide a great bonus for businesses mindful of environmental programs and sustainability upgrades. On the other hand, industries like Renewable Energy are heavily supported across the manufacturing, development, and energy production chain, and may be at serious risk if particular incentives are eliminated. At this event, we bring organizations together to learn about opportunities to leverage sustainability incentives and drive profitability in their books and operations. 



Employing and Leveraging Incentives:
  • What are some of the current programs and incentives out there now?
  • Which incentives are the most popular? Which are generating the most profit?
  • How are consulting/accounting firms helping businesses incorporate these programs?
  • How are companies using these incentives? Can different organizations benefit from the same incentive in different ways?
  • Discuss the non-pecuniary benefits of sustainability incentives – public image, etc
Policy Climate and Risk:
  • Is the policy climate shifting away from sustainable legislation and incentives?
  • Ways to determine whether your business is reliant on incentives and subsides
  • Could your business be at risk of losing current incentives?
  • How may a change in policy alter the market?
Addressing Risk and Vulnerability:
  • What strategies can your business use to mitigate the risks stemming from political maneuvering in Washington?
  • Consider some ways to protect budgets and financial resources when the incentive climate changes in the future.
  • How much time do businesses need to wean off of current incentives while avoiding massive impacts to shareholders and corporate bottom line?
