Two thirds of chief financial officers are closely involved in spearheading sustainability strategies in their companies, reports a new study by Deloitte, and more than half of those CFOs report that their involvement has increased within the last year.
The survey polled 250 CFOs across 14 countries and five continents, and revealed that sustainability is no longer just a marketing point about corporate responsibility, but is instead becoming a driving factor in financial performance and business continuity.
Most heavily focused areas of sustainability initiatives for CFOs tend to be an increased vigilance over sustainability’s impact on tax and financial reporting and an increased investment in resource-efficient technology.
For example, many companies have increased practices such as video conferencing, data center efficient equipment upgrades and the use of electric-powered company vehicles. Businesses have also invested in sustainable furniture asset management – a renovation tactic that is not only environmentally-friendly, but also helps save a company’s budget and bottom line.
