The Role of Finance in Environmental Sustainability Efforts

The Role of Finance in Environmental Sustainability Efforts

March 2008

Contribution from Jones Lang LaSalle. This report was prepared by CFO Research Services in collaboration with Jones Lang LaSalle. Managing sustainably, defined in this report as managing environmental impacts to meet the needs of both present and future generations, can affect the very core of a business. It influences processes and systems of all kinds, from product design and marketing, to corporate governance and facilities management. A variety of pressures have elevated sustainability's prominence in recent years: competition, globalization, regulation, energy costs, climate change, and other factors. These pressures promise to change the role and responsibilities of all senior executives.
