Each of the lectures will address how carbon is redefining the role of modern accountancy, ask how and why firms should measure their environmental impact, and explore some of the management techniques progressive businesses are deploying to encourage executives to deliver against carbon targets.

They will also provide executives with a valuable insight into the carbon regulations for which they need to prepare, and how new rules can help their business save money and exploit new low-carbon business opportunities.

The lectures will be followed by an interactive question and answer session, and networking drinks.

The latest lecture follows on from's successful Sustainable Business Lectures last year on the Copenhagen summit and the UK's Low Carbon Transition Plan, both of which attracted an audience of more than 150 senior executives.
