The CFO as accelerator of sustainability transformation | How Sodexo incorporates sustainability in their strategic execution

February 7, 2024

One of the key factors in changing expectations for CFOs is a new concept of value. Where earning per share or other financial metrics were the most important indicators, value has been expanded to encompass a wide range of rapidly evolving trends and key considerations, including environmental, social, and governance (ESG) concerns. Therefore, in this session Vincent Blok, CFO of Sodexo Netherlands, will share his vision and insights on why sustainability became a key element of Sodexo’s proposition, how this is imbedded in their strategic execution, what his role is in driving change and how a renewed digital strategy accelerates this transformation. You are most welcome to join!

  • Small scaled peer session
  • Open dialogue by means of the Chatham House Rule

Once, the CFO led a team that prepared information on historic financial results and trends and set limits on spending.
