We are delighted to introduce the winners of our inaugural Treasury4Good Awards, which recognise the growing importance of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) and Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) in the treasury marketplace.
78% of the world's top companies now include corporate responsibility information in their annual financial reports - and 43% have already connected their corporate responsibility reporting to the UN's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). With more and more global consumers expecting businesses to operate in a responsible manner that addresses social and environmental issues, what do treasurers need to be aware of?
As new technology gets wired into the city, itís revolutionising urban efficiency and improving the lives of citizens. The job of the treasurer and the finance function more broadly is to support this change; to create order and clarity.
Treasuries have a responsibility to support the overall corporate sustainability strategy, but many may not realise that the organisations they deal with on a daily basis Ė their banks Ė can be a valuable source of information and assistance with this task.
