Sustainable leadership is imperative in addressing immediate risks while taking cognizance of longer-term strategic priorities and transforming organizations to be sustainable and resilient to future shocks. Sustainable leaders understand the role that their companies play in a larger context. They look beyond immediate, short-term gains and set strategies and deliver results that meet the triple bottom line of social, environmental and financial performance.
The role of the Chief Financial Officer is no longer confined to reconciling the financial balance sheets and crunching revenues, earnings, budget, and the like. Beyond financial performance, CFOs also holds an increasing responsibility for environmental, social and economic impacts.
According to Sanda Ojiambo, the CEO and executive director of the United Nations (UN) Global Compact Network, CFOs can have a “transformative impact” by “leveraging how corporate finance and investment is positioned to drive forward both a strong and sustainable business.” Armed with their extensive financial expertise, CFOs are in the most strategic position to instill a financial approach in setting strategy and direction in all organizational activities – including sustainability.
With our distinguished line up of guest speakers, this webinar will discuss why the CFO’s role is critical in driving corporate sustainability and explore the perspectives, skills, tools and roles needed by a sustainable CFO.
