In 2021, Mr. Gary McGaghey and other CFOs held discussions on various issues that would be important to them in 2022. Considering the recent proposal by SEC, which requires that companies disclose the climate-related hazards, it meant that CFOs’ duties would be made conspicuous. Most companies would be experiencing this process for the first time, and therefore, the CFOs have to lead the company towards delivering the report. SEC would also need companies to bring up their Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) strategies.
The CFOs had six main topics for the conference on their 2022 agendas. The contents include work’s future, enabling growth, accelerating transformation, ESG, purpose and trust-building, and regulating risks and taxes. The 2021 seminar mainly focused on ESG, considering it has recently gained attention and momentum at the council level. The CFOs believed that it was more important to achieve a better climate report, a situation that would compel a firm forward.
The CFOs also considered examining the strategies, reports, and operations of individual CFO from 2022. They talked about looking at their company’s ESG program and how it would instill trust, and attract & withhold talents.
