Turning Sustainable Aspirations into Actionable Realities

About this event

 

CFOs recognize the importance of sustainability to the long-term value of the business. One CFO we spoke to even went so far as to say, “the CFO is the best person to lead sustainability because he or she has full understanding of the company’s and the best visibility of the ecosystem and the industry.”

The challenge for many CFOs, however, is orchestrating a sustainability program starting with a framework and leading up to managing the many moving parts and members of a sustainable initiative.

This 17 August 2022, FutureCFO, in partnership with the SAP, cordially invites you to an evening connect on “Turning Sustainable Aspirations into Actionable Realities” where we will cover among other things:

  1. Understanding the elements of an agile sustainability framework
  2. Hurdles and challenges that will come naturally in a sustainability journey
  3. Action items to incorporate in your sustainability initiative

As a treat, we will have a very special guest CFO share his/her experience in executing the company’s sustainability initiatives, what worked and what didn’t, learnings during the journey, and key takeaways that attendees can take back with them to finetune their own sustainability initiatives.

It’s the not-to-be-missed event of the year.
