Coming together: ESG and the future of the finance function
In March 2022 the US Securities and Exchange Commission released its climate change disclosure rule proposal. For companies committed to their green agendas, the proposal has sparked critical questions about their approach to compliance and its impact on their business. Chief among them: Who is going to lead the way? How do the finance and sustainability functions need to work together and adapt? And how can we tech-enable our processes? For many, the answer is creating a new position: an ESG controller.
In this session we’ll discuss what we’re seeing in the market and allow participants to learn from one another about how finance and sustainability functions are engaging, what ESG controllers do, why it matters, what’s next, and what role technology will play in this shift.
