Most CFOs didn’t think they’d need to become sustainability champions when they took the job. However, as companies face increasing regulatory and reputational pressures to act on climate change, CFOs are finding that their traditional skillsets—such as ensuring compliance and allocating resources—are the very ones critical to sustainability success. Savvy CFOs across industries are scrambling up the learning curve to successfully integrate sustainability into the core business strategy.
On July 22nd, The Climate Board hosted Financial Leadership for Climate Action: A CFO Roundtable. CFOs and other leaders from a diversity of industries met virtually to explore how sustainability manifests as a financially material issue and how the role of the CFO is evolving in light of it. Organizational leaders shared challenges and successes in a collaborative setting, leaving with insights to strengthen their financial leadership in the climate space.
