Promotional Information

This book is a "must read" for every director, every CFO aka CVO, every accountant, as well as all stakeholders with high expectations for tomorrow's companies to create value in responsible and sustainable ways. -- Olivia Kirtley, President, International Federation of Accountants If anyone has doubts about the transformational characteristics of sustainability, the author brilliantly demonstrates how influential the concept of sustainability has become. Organizations either adapt or face the consequences of a silo mentality; a refusal to implement the necessary and unstoppable changes presented in the idea of integrated thinking and reporting threatens the long-term sustainability of businesses and affects their relationships with stakeholders. Are the accountants and the Chief Value Office in charge of bringing and implementing "the change"? That remains to be seen. -- Cesar Poveda, author and book critic This book is very powerful in the context of the next phase of the IIRC's strategy, which places corporate governance front and centre. The evolution of the finance profession is extremely well articulated, from Chief Finance Officer to Chief Value Officer... It is a vital next step in governance. The more into the book you read, the more it feels like a manifesto for 21st-century corporate governance. -- Paul Druckman, Former CEO, International Integrated Reporting Council

A brand new book, 'Chief Value Officer: Accountants Can Save the Planet' by Mervyn King with Jill Atkins (Greenleaf Publishing, December 2016), radically redefines the role of accountants.... This book is a rich source for the Ethics in Higher Education programme, demonstrating as it does how professions must and can be transformed into professions that create long term value for society. What is true for accountants, is true for engineers, economists, architects, doctors, and so on. - || Book review: Chief Value Officer - Accountants Can Save The Planet Certainly anyone interested in the communication of business information, in the widest sense, or who works in the field professionally, would benefit from reading this book.Currently, too much corporate information is given in coded, and often impenetrable, language that's designed to meet the letter rather than the spirit of regulatory requirements.It would be refreshing if corporate performance were to begin being communicated in a way in which the layman could understand it.Perhaps integrated reporting is a step along the way; and the CVO acronym will one day become as well-known as CFO and COO, on the seas of the Pythons' mythical wide Accountancy. - International Investment - Gerry Brown
