CFO TASKFORCE FOR THE SDGs

Bringing together a multi-sector group of corporate finance leaders to develop innovative strategies to mobilize finance towards sustainable development

Join the CFO Taskforce for the SDGs

There is collective recognition from investors and Governments that corporates are uniquely positioned to reshape the future of corporate finance and investment as a catalyst for growth, value creation and social impact. As the stewards of trillions of dollars in corporate finance, Chief Financial Officers (CFOs) have a critical role to play in ensuring that companies’ financial strategies are aligned to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The UN Global Compact is convening a taskforce of CFOs for 24 months to provide a platform to interact with their peers, investors, financial institutions, and the United Nations to share ideas, develop new concepts and frameworks, and provide recommendations to unlock private capital and create a market to mainstream SDG investments.

Why You Should Join

As part of the CFO Taskforce, you will work with peers on a programme of activities that create tremendous impact for companies globally and empowers them to contribute meaningfully to the SDGs and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

  • Create a set of principles: Establish guiding principles and best practices for SDG-aligned corporate finance and investment opportunities
  • Pioneer financial innovation to drive value: Develop innovative financial instruments and create a broad market of diversified investment opportunities in the SDGs
  • Share outputs with stakeholders: Communicate ideas with investors, policymakers and other stakeholders in securing the financial capital needed to finance the SDGs at scale
