The Changing Role of the CSO

Thursday October 26, 10:15 am-11:15 am

Business integrator, impact officer, or futurist? The role of the Chief Sustainability Officer can vary enormously, not least during a time of great change. More and more, CSOs are being asked to work across regions and functions to drive fundamental change in corporate strategy, value creation, and organizational culture. The CSO also has the potential to be a source of generating innovation that creates revenue and business opportunities. What skills and qualifications does the CSO of the future need? Is the ultimate goal of the CSO to work herself out of a job, or will there always be a need for the distinct form of leadership? This panel will explore the changing job description for the CSO and the many ways the CSO can drive transformational change that delivers business value and social impact.
