Sustainable Brands recently announced Mark Kaye, Chief Financial Officer (CFO) of Moody’s Corporation, as a distinguished keynote speaker for its annual New Metrics conference. New Metrics ‘19: Next Generation Goals & Reporting, scheduled for November 18-20 in Philadelphia, PA, will gather more than 300 executives, sustainability strategists and finance leaders from across the globe. Moody’s Corporation provides credit ratings, research, tools and analysis that contribute to transparent and integrated financial markets. It is committed to embedding sustainable principles across its operations and enabling better outcomes for companies and investors through its data and assessments on environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues.
Mark Kaye is responsible for all global financial activities for Moody’s Corporation and leads a team whose mission is to provide data-driven financial insights to support the execution of the company’s operational and strategic decisions. His address at New Metrics ‘19 will focus on the characteristics of sustainability-minded CFOs, highlighting how CFOs and their teams can best orient themselves toward forward-looking ‘integrated planning’; advance investment in social and environmental innovation; and encourage the incorporation of ESG considerations into new products and services. He will also speak to the importance of impact measurement and reporting.
“CFOs of the future will be challenged to place sustainability at the heart of financial decision-making,” said Mark Kaye, Chief Financial Officer of Moody’s. “Scaling up these actions globally will require a transformation in financial decision-making, alongside changes to traditional accounting practices and education to empower tomorrow’s leaders to take this forward.”
“We are honored to have Mark participate at New Metrics ’19,” states Dimitar Vlahov, Sr. Director of Knowledge and Insights at Sustainable Brands. “Having the CFO of Moody’s is a testament to the importance of the role of business in our society, and how business must integrate these issues into both decision-making and reporting.”
