I was recently speaking with a CFO colleague of mine who told me about a recent board meeting where his company’s energy manager was invited to report on energy efficiency initiatives. “I understand that it’s good for PR, but it doesn’t exactly make financial sense, does it?” he asked. My colleague’s statement echoes the sentiment shared by many in the finance industry who still regard sustainability as being at odds with business objectives and with being able to contribute to the bottom line.
