Anna Blitz earns the Sustainable Accounting Standard Board (SASB) FSA Level One Credential.
Antea Group is excited to announce that consultant Anna Blitz has earned the Sustainable Accounting Standard Board (SASB) Fundamentals of Sustainability Accounting (FSA) Level One Credential.
The Fundamentals of Sustainability Accounting is an innovative program which combines two exams to assess professional expertise in the materiality of sustainability information for corporate strategy and investment analysis. The exam focuses on the impact of sustainability factors on financial performance, the legal context of material sustainability information, as well as the development of a common language to describe the materiality of sustainability information to finance, legal and accounting professionals.
The FSA Credential is unique in that it combines the rigors of finance and accounting with sustainability, while integrating material sustainability information into mainstream investing and corporate management practices. At the forefront of the field, research has shown that a knowledge of SASB’s approach can help corporate professionals, advisors, and investors protect long-term value.
Anna is now one of just 150 or so FSA credential holders worldwide. With more than 15 years of experience in management and sustainability consulting, she is dedicated to partnering with clients as they develop and implement their sustainability programs. Her specialty is sustainability strategy, including the development of environmental metrics and key performance indicators, and preparation of sustainability reports and public disclosure documents. In addition to her FSA accreditation, Anna is GRI G3.1 and G4 certified.
Anna plans to take the Level Two exam as soon as it becomes available, and in the meantime has been asked by SASB to participate in an upcoming webinar to help others prepare for and know what to expect on the exam.
