We all have a role to play to embed sustainability in our businesses and society. In particular, the global financial services industry is in a unique position to drive and support the transition to a low-carbon economy. As climate and other environmental, social and governance (ESG) concerns take center stage, they are hitting the bottom line and thus are increasingly a focus for the C-Suite.

The IIF and Deloitte tackle the topic of sustainability in the financial services industry by exploring an increasingly critical role – the Chief Sustainability Officer (CSO). This event will feature an overview of the key findings from a new survey-based report, The Future of the Chief Sustainability Officer: Sense-Maker in Chief (launching on February 10). This will be followed by an expert panel discussion of key themes shaping the sustainability agenda across financial services firms.

    During the online event, our expert panelists will discuss:
  • How financial institutions are mobilizing to address the ESG imperative
  • Why some firms have CSOs and others do not
  • What the CSO’s mandate is within a firm
  • Which skill sets and leadership attributes are necessary to deliver on that mandate
  • How CSOs contribute to the governance of their organization
