The United Nations Global Compact has just launched its new CFO Taskforce to further advance the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations.
What is the CFO Taskforce?
The UN Global Compact is putting together a taskforce of Chief Financial Officers (CFOs) from the real economy and the financial sector alike. The taskforce aims at anchoring the SDGs in the financial strategies of companies worldwide. CFOs are responsible for managing the financial flows of companies, making them not only knowledgeable but also influential. Therefore, they can be powerful agents of change for the sake of sustainability.
In the next 24 months the CFO Taskforce will function as a platform for the interaction between companies, investors, financial institutions and the United Nations.
What does the CFO Taskforce do?
The members of the CFO Taskforce strive to push financial capital towards investments related to SDGs.
The taskforce’s activities include:
- Promoting a guiding framework for SDG-aligned corporate finance and investments
- Sharing experiences and best practices on integrating sustainability in corporate finance and investments
- Pioneering financial innovation to deploy the capital in a way that maximizes impact
Why should I join the CFO Taskforce?
Joining the CFO Taskforce will allow you to take part in an initiative that will advance the dissemination of the SDGs, will further anchore them within the corporate context and thereby promote the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
