How finance can become the next frontier to champion sustainability in business

How finance can become the next frontier to champion
Sustainability has, in recent years, become more intrinsically linked to the financial performance of a business as consumers have steadily changed their purchasing decisions based more on environmental and social factors. Four out of five Singaporeans said they cared about the environment while half of those polled said carbon emissions and climate change were their top concerns. Importantly, 41 per cent said they were largely motivated by sustainability features when making purchasing decisions. This can have a significant impact on the bottom line for organizations that fail to keep pace with the evolving market and invest in more sustainable and environmentally friendly practices.

SPUME.IO

Our vision with Spume is the complete removal of all intermediaries that prey on individuals during the trading of digital and physical goods. This covers a broad range of markets: everything from artwork to real estate will be tokenizable and tradable on Spume’s marketplace. All revenue generated from Spume’s marketplace is given directly back to SPUME token holders.

Improving Intercompany Accounting

whitePaper | August 18, 2022

Intercompany accounting is integral to the assignment of the profits of domestic and global enterprises. It also has a significant bearing on the effective tax rate of the group. Intercompany accounts therefore must be calculated accurately, accounted for and settled in a timely manner, and tagged properly so intercompany liabilities and profits can be eliminated when results are consolidated. Many of the most common hurdles to an efficient and effective intercompany process can be traced to low levels of process automation, lack of access to a single source of the truth, and decentralized and inconsistent practices. By adopting best practices and reducing the need for manual intervention, account-to-report organizations can not only reduce the cost of the process, but also improve its effectiveness.
