Sustainable Investment Leaders webinar series
In November 2019, ICMIF announced a global partnership with The Prince’s Accounting for Sustainability Project (A4S). Established by HRH The Prince of Wales in 2004, A4S aims to make sustainable decision-making “business as usual”, inspiring leaders to adopt sustainable and resilient business models; to transform financial decision-making to enable an integrated approach; and to scale up this activity across the global finance and accounting community. ICMIF and A4S have been working together for several years with some ICMIF members also involved. Indeed, The Co-operators in Canada and Securian Financial in the USA were founding members of the A4S CFO Leadership Network in both their respective countries.
This webinar represents the launch of the ICMIF Circle of Best Practice designed to inspire ICMIF members to drive a fundamental shift towards resilient business models and a sustainable economy. It introduces the work of A4S, their goals and objectives and highlight further opportunities for ICMIF members to become part of A4S’s global CFO Leadership Network. The CFOs of The Co-operators and Securian Financial also share their reflections on their first-hand experience of working with A4S as well as discuss why embedding sustainability into everyday decision-making is important to their companies.
