Sustainability and the Global Corporation: Role of the CFO
MetadataShow full item record
The project focuses on whether there are a specific, universal set of guidelines for corporate CFOs to follow to devise sustainability solutions, reporting frameworks, and regulatory compliance. The project author hypothesizes there are major interpretation gaps on how to carry out such initiatives and no one set of guidelines is universally accepted. Most CFOs will have to make a judgement call as to which set of guidelines to follow. Knowledge was obtained by reviewing publicly released company records of several entities and conducting interviews with the relevant persons from select companies preparing and supporting environmental reporting initiatives. Best practices and information were retrieved through a review of articles, financial reports, and guidance from companies, regulatory organizations, and agencies. Project results confirmed several environmental sustainability guidelines exist from various compliance organizations. Companies selected for the research study were based on various market indices measuring sustainability practices amongst publicly traded companies.
