Product information

Overview

Happy new year! We are pleased to present the next Women in Leadership Forum Webinar on Sustainability.

Organisations are increasingly being judged based on non-financial performance; environment, social and governance (ESG) factors are of increasing importance. Finance professionals need to be taking a leading role. We can provide financial and non-financial reporting, explain risks and set strategy.

The session explores

• Why - sustainability is a mainstream issue

• What – the sustainability space; environmental, social, and governance

• Who – the call to action for finance professionals

• How – the four lenses of governance, strategy, risk management, and metrics and targets

Speakers:

Guest speaker from the Financial reporting council

Associate Technical Director, CIMA Research - Martin Farra

Associate Manager, Ethics Awareness, CIMA- Bryony Clear Hill
