Building a finance culture that embraces sustainability
Find out how cultivating a sustainable finance culture can strengthen your organization’s resilience and how to make it happen.
Why finance culture
Culture matters. Processes are important, but a sustainable finance function can’t be created through processes alone.
To create meaningful and long-lasting change, you need a finance culture that is aligned with your objectives.
Culture is about the shared values and assumptions that guide how the finance function behaves and how it responds to environmental and social risks and opportunities. A supportive culture offers a solid foundation for change.
Creating a supportive culture
Finance functions are often seen as a barrier to change for organizations that want to work more sustainably. This doesn’t have to be the case.
