PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Sustainability is as much a part of your financial decisions as it is your operational decisions. While some Chief Financial Officers have integrated principles of sustainability into their work, still too many don’t realize the connection between sustainability and economic and financial issues. This workshop is designed for CFOs, accountants, human resource professionals responsible for employee benefit packages and investment officers. 

 

Topics that will be discussed as they relate to sustainability include: 

  • Accounting and the rise of Sustainable Accounting Standards Board (SASB) standards

  • Banking options and choices

  • Investment decisions

  • Employee benefit packages

  • Updating financial and investment policies
