EisnerAmper hosts Exclusive Screening of Matilda The Musical

EisnerAmper Ireland was delighted to host a screening of Matilda The Musical on Saturday afternoon, 26 November, in Movies @ Dundrum for friends of the Firm and their families.

Following the very successful multi-award-winning musical from the Royal Shakespeare Company, inspired by the beloved book by Roald Dahl, Matilda tells the story of an extraordinary girl who, armed with a sharp mind and a vivid imagination, dares to take a stand to change her story against her cruel family and school teacher with miraculous results.

It was a most enjoyable afternoon and provided an opportunity for friends of the Firm to catch up with members of our team and enjoy the exclusive screening.

We care about business and we care about the people we work with in business.

Key Outcomes from COP27

Key Outcomes from COP27 | ESG | EisnerAmper Ireland

The 27th Conference of the Parties on Climate Change (COP27) took place in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt from November 6th to 20th 2022. It saw political leaders, climate activists, NGO observers and journalists from almost 200 countries coming together to progress the setting and achieving of the world’s collective climate goals.

A milestone decision was reached as wealthy countries agreed to pay for climate damages in developing nations. However, this was somewhat undermined by the lack of progress on the phasing out of fossil fuels.

Key Outcomes

New climate change Loss-and-Damage Fund agreed

Policymakers from wealthy countries, which account for the majority of historical Greenhouse Gas emissions, have agreed to establish a new fund to support victims of climate disasters. This major milestone comes after developing countries had sought financial aid for almost three decades to help rescue and rebuild efforts after extreme weather events. The fund will assist countries such as Pakistan where floods earlier this year caused an estimated €30 billion worth of damages and Somalia where more than seven million people are facing crisis hunger levels arising from the ongoing drought in the region.

Although the creation of this fund has been agreed, the details of who should pay into the fund, where the money will come from, and which countries will benefit are yet to be decided.

Lack of ambition to phase out fossil fuels

The final overarching deal did not include commitments to reduce the use of fossil fuels. This was in part due to resistance from some nations wishing to exploit their oil and gas reserves; and the energy crisis in Europe which has seen some countries resorting to the use of coal while looking further afield for new sources of natural gas. This outcome means limited progress has been made in relation to last year’s decision at COP26 in Glasgow to phase-down the use of coal.

The final summary text from COP27 states that limiting global warming to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels, as agreed by 196 Parties at COP21 in Paris in 2015, requires “rapid, deep and sustained reductions in greenhouse gas emissions” by 2030. In Ireland, the focus now turns to the Climate Action Plan 2022 which is due for publication in December 2022. This is a detailed plan for taking decisive action to achieve a 51% reduction in overall greenhouse gas emissions by 2030.

Team EisnerAmper supports Run in the Dark 2022

Run in the Dark 2022 | CSR | EisnerAmper Ireland

On 9 November 2022, members of the EisnerAmper team joined thousands of runners partaking in Run in the Dark. Run in the Dark is the main fundraiser for the Mark Pollock Trust which is aiming to find a cure for paralysis in our lifetime. This is the sixth consecutive year ‘Team EisnerAmper’ has participated in Run in the Dark.

Unbroken by blindness in 1998, adventure athlete Mark Pollock was left paralysed in 2010. Now, with the team at the Mark Pollock Trust, Mark is exploring the intersection where humans and technology collide, catalysing collaborations that have never been done before and in doing so unlocking $1 billion to find a cure for paralysis in our lifetime.

We were delighted that this year’s event was held in person again for the first time since 2019. Our team joined thousands of other participants at North Dock, Dublin City to begin their race at 8pm. Following the impact of Covid-19, Run in the Dark also created an app to allow participants to run safely within their own area. This year participants could use the app to still virtually join others walking or running 5k and 10k around the world.

At EisnerAmper Ireland, we design solutions to support our community.

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is integral to how we do business and manage interactions, not just with our employees and clients but also our wider community and society as a whole. As a professional services firm, demonstrating ethical high performance in all aspects of our work and how we run our firm is fundamental to our success.
