“…working with smaller, purpose-led, businesses who are looking to embed sustainability across their business and make it work for the long term.”
David is a GRI Certified Sustainability Professional and has over 30 years of accountancy experience with businesses of all sizes throughout the UK and around the world.
First working with one of the “big-4” accountancy firms in Hong Kong, he started his own practice in the Midlands in the early 2000s and has been working with discerning clients ever since.
Business value is no longer simply explained by physical assets. Non-financial measures are increasingly playing a role in adding value to a business. For listed businesses today, around 19% of a company’s market value is explained by physical and financial assets compared to 83% in 1975. That is why working with an accountant who also understands the mechanics of properly quality assured global standards in Corporate Social Reporting (CSR)/Ethical, Environmental, Social, and Governance (EESG) reporting is so vital.
David particularly likes working with smaller, purpose-led, businesses who are looking to embed sustainability across their business and make it work for the long term.
A critical part of his approach is that sustainability is an ongoing journey of improvement rather than a destination. So wherever you are now, it is always worth a question of where your next step will take you – tomorrow will always be better.
