Studies report that two-thirds of CFOs now drive sustainability efforts in their companies. Overall this sounds good, but what’s actually being measured? Do indicators measure progress, boost public image or both? First-wave sustainability initiatives are often highly visible and focus on the tangibles. After all, reducing or replacing wasteful products or processes actually saves money, even if over the long term.
