we believe that finance leaders have a responsibility to lead sustainability initiatives. We recognize that sustainability is not just an ethical imperative, but a business one as well. Therefore, we have implemented initiatives to reduce our carbon footprint, implement a zero-waste policy, and engage with stakeholders to promote sustainable practices. By integrating sustainability considerations into our financial decision-making processes, we can contribute to a more sustainable and prosperous future for our firm, clients, and community. Sustainability is a collaborative effort, and we are committed to working with others to develop industry-wide sustainability standards that align with our firm's values.

I believe you need to come up with sustainable operations and initiatives that align with your business. You must illustrate the impact and put the numbers in front of somebody so they can tangibly see the connection. If you say this is improving our bottom line because you can see xyz or our hiring practices have improved because of xyz and our margins have improved at the gross level because of certain grants or subsidies that we've been able to take advantage of, etc. You can’t combat and say I disagree with you when the data is shown right here.

Sustainably is such a large global challenge , every C level executive will need to “lean in”.
Finance may well be the logical place ( due to data) to house the data but it will take all. And the CEO and Board of Directors will need to lead from the front.

Without a doubt - Technical Debt! It's a ball and chain that creates an ever increasing drag on any organization, stifles innovation, and prevents transformation.
