Championing an Integrated Mindset: Driving Sustainability and Value Creation

June 14, 2022


Achieving sustainable value creation requires businesses to think, measure, manage and report in a more integrated manner.

To deliver useful information for internal decision-making, as well as for comprehensive, trustworthy corporate reporting, CFOs and finance functions can break down functional and information silos with an integrated mindset, bringing together information from corporate functions and external sources about sustainability impacts and related opportunities and risks that are relevant to the value creation process. To help meet this demand, professional accountants can leverage their skills to foster an integrated mindset that connects financial and sustainability data, processes and analyses. 

Championing an Integrated Mindset to Drive Sustainability and Value Creation calls on businesses to integrate financial and sustainability information with an integrated mindset to make better-informed decisions that deliver long-term value creation—financial returns to investors while taking account of value to customers, employees, suppliers, and societal interests.
