GLRPPR Sector Resource: Sustainability and the CFO: Challenges, Opportunities, and Next Practices

Title:
Sustainability and the CFO: Challenges, Opportunities, and Next Practices

Abstract:
Until very recently, most CFOs viewed "sustainability" as someone else's job -- a matter of compliance or philanthropy unrelated to the pressing concerns that typically keep financial executives up at night. A growing number of prominent CFOs have adopted a sharply different view and, in so doing, are sending a powerful message to their peers in corporate finance: Take a closer look, and you will find increasing opportunities to leverage sustainability thinking for value creation--especially when dealing with pressures to reduce short-term business costs and strengthen your organization's foundation for longterm growth. CFOs can leverage sustainability to improve enterprise performance in three areas: (1) risk management, (2) capital productivity, and (3) innovation and growth.
