EIANZ partners with Accounting for Nature

Published 18 June 2024

EIANZ is delighted to announce a new partnership with Accounting for Nature (AfN), the not-for-profit organisation behind the world’s leading global environmental accounting standard.

The AfN Framework is a scientifically rigorous methodology for measuring environmental condition that has been tried and tested over a decade through a collaborative effort by around 200 world-leading experts. AfN provides certification of environmental accounts around the world, and at different scales – from property/project level to the portfolio level, and at the regional ecosystem and national scales.

As part of a reciprocal arrangement, EIANZ members will now be entitled to reduced rates on selected AfN in-person and online training courses.

Through EIANZ’s Environmental Accounting Special Interest Section (SIS), this new partnership will also create exciting opportunities for knowledge exchange, shared training resources and content creation.

EIANZ and AfN are both committed to promoting the use of environmental accounting in reporting and decision-making, and advancing the field of environmental accounting for the benefit of our members, users, and the profession.

EIANZ partnerships

Through partnerships with likeminded organisations, EIANZ is pleased to be able to offer additional and varied benefits to our members, while strengthening our voice in the environment industry as part of a global network of more than 25,000 environmental professionals.

Our partnership with AfN adds to EIANZ’s existing agreements with the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment (IEMA), the Australasian Land and Groundwater Association (ALGA), the New Zealand Association of Impact Assessment (NZAIA), the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP) and the National Environmental Law Association (NELA).
