The Board Intelligence Think Tank, in partnership with the ICAEW, Accounting for Sustainability and Odgers Berndtson, have launched a research inquiry into the CFO’s role in creating a fairer future. We’re bringing together CFOs at our events, interviewing leading CFOs and developing thought leadership.
Social challenges like the cost-of-living crisis and climate change are fast becoming issues that directly impact the bottom line. Navigating these risks and making our businesses resilient to them is increasingly part of the CFO's job. Stakeholder expectations are higher, investors are focusing on ESG, and the modern CFO’s role is rapidly changing away from solely financial matters.
We want to hear from you. You can get involved in the inquiry by responding to our survey.
“The CFO is critical. If you don’t have the CFO’s buy-in, there’s no point in trying to start doing purpose . . . the finance department can block things every which way they want.”
