CFOs and Sustainability

CFOs and Sustainability: Expanding understanding of the nexus between financial and environmental performance  

Sustainability has become a key driver of economic growth as global demands for diminishing resources increase and environmental concerns heighten. The CFO holds a pivotal role in driving corporate environmental sustainability – a role that is still largely unfulfilled at most companies, including the tech community. The CFO’s role is not just about capital, finance, and accounting. The CFO “owns” risk and value. The Silicon Valley Leadership Group is identifying and disseminating best practices for CFOs in support of sustainability while also defining discrete opportunities for engagement specific to the high-tech sector based in Silicon Valley.
