Odgers Berndtson: The Rapid Rise of the Chief Sustainability Officer
Enter the Chief Sustainability Officer (CSO)
Is the Chief Sustainability Officer about to become the most crucial member of the C-suite guiding a transition toward a new economic reality? Odgers Berndtson explores.
Corporate sustainability is no longer the domain of generalists, marketing experts or individuals entering the twilight years of their career. Now, it’s striking at the strategic and operational core of some of the most well-regarded global companies.
More and more chief executives and founders, such as Virgin Group’s Richard Branson and Procter & Gamble CEO David Taylor, are proactively championing sustainability.
More than that, an increasing number of top firms are investing in senior C-suite level leaders who can drive the formulation and execution of a corporate sustainability strategy.
