CFO Leadership Network
What is the CFO Leadership Network?
The A4S Chief Financial Officer Leadership Network was launched by HRH The Prince of Wales at St James’s Palace in December 2013.
The Network brings together a group of leading CFOs from large organizations seeking to embed the management of environmental and social issues into strategy and business processes.
The CFO Leadership Network is the first grouping of its kind globally.
The Network is global, currently operating in Europe and Canada with further chapters to be established in Asia and North America. The Network is being expanded to include representation from around the world in a series of regional chapters.
The Network is looking at each area of finance function activity to identify how positive business returns can be achieved through integration of environmental, social and economic considerations.
The focus is on sharing insights into what works and what does not. The Network aims to create open source guidance, which members of the Network commit to adopt and share. These insights are also discussed with bodies involved in the training and education of the finance and accounting community to scale up action.
This guidance can now be downloaded as part of the A4S Essential Guide Series >
Finance professionals from Network members' organizations undertake a range of projects to develop practical guidance on specific areas of financial decision making.
