As sustainability takes root, finance takes notice

Published on: Jun 01, 2017

While it has been around in many forms, sustainability has been, admittedly, a squishy topic that’s more likely to be “owned” by the marketing department or viewed as a risk management issue rather than as a strategic priority for finance.

However, that appears to be changing quickly. Proponents of sustainability – which include investors, consumers, regulators, NGOs (nongovernmental organizations), and others – are demanding that companies think more broadly about how they make money, and about the impacts their operations and decisions have on the environment and society.

In this issue of CFO Insights, we take a look at the rapidly emerging standards that are not only intended to simplify sustainability reporting, but also provide companies with insights that can improve performance – as well as additional steps CFOs can take to improve that reporting and drive value.
