Finance Innovation Survey 2022
How Finance executives in Switzerland relate to sustainability
This year's Finance Innovation Survey addresses the question of how Finance executives in Switzerland relate to sustainability. Our goal is to shed light on the role of the Finance department in sustainability; examine sustainability reporting; explore processes, systems and data; and highlight the talents and skills situation that can enable Finance to act as a catalyst for a company's sustainability efforts.
Last year’s report revealed that the most important shift in Finance’s portfolio of activities was the deployment of technologies to exploit the full potential of data, including environmental analyses.
This year, Finance executives in Switzerland were asked about their perception of the current state of the Finance function and their vision for its future in relation to sustainability. Currently there is a gap between Swiss Finance leaders’ aspiration to play an integral role in sustainability and their readiness to be part of that transformation. In this report, you will find ideas on how to bridge the gap between Finance leaders’ aspirations and current capabilities.
