Focus: Sustainability: CFOs are coming to the table
Sustainability and the CFO survey findings
CFOs are engaging with sustainability. That's the key finding of the 2012 Sustainability and the CFO survey, undertaken on behalf of Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited and its member firms by independent analyst firm Verdantix.
The 250 CFOs surveyed—representing companies with greater than US$1 billion in revenue each, across 14 countries on five continents—painted a clear picture of a CFO function whose attitude toward sustainability is in transition. For much of this group, sustainability is integral to how their businesses run. This paper offers ten key findings on how CFOs are engaging with sustainability.
