Event Details

Join AusBG and AmCham Abu Dhabi for an informative event on Sustainability, ESG and Finance: Key Imperatives for the C-Suite in partnership with IMA® (Institute of Management Accountants).

When: Monday, 12th September 2022

Time: 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Where: Auditorium, InterContinental Abu Dhabi

Despite the realization that environmental, social and governance (ESG) imperatives are clearly linked to organizational value creation, clear-cut implementation remains a challenge for CFOs and their organizations. There is a clear trade-off between short-term performance and the achievement of sustainability goals that will create long-term value for the organization and its shareholders. While CFOs realize that they need to embrace the trade-offs, the consensus on how to do so remains unclear. Just how ready are organizations and their leaders to take advantage of the opportunity? Is there a significant gap between the need to improve sustainability reporting, sustainability programs, and organizations' ability to respond?

The discussion at this event will examine key elements now impacting the finance and accounting (F&A) profession and attempt to highlight the roadmap that better aligns sustainability practices and ESG from a F&A perspective. Russ Porter will dive into these emerging areas of importance to investors, customers, and regulators to explore a roadmap that will help the CFO and his team safeguard the interests of their companies and the challenges they stand to face in making the transition.

Learning Outcomes:

  • How to get ahead of sustainability, ESG issues and help shape the future
  • How to involve the finance function in both the macro and micro sustainability and ESG ecosystems of organizations.
  • Keys to designing and implementing optimal policies given those ecosystem conditions.
