Selling Sustainable Investments to Your CFO 

What: Join EDF’s Elizabeth Sturcken for this breakfast roundtable to discuss how your company can move beyond quick sustainability wins to the next level of investment, which is generally larger, more strategic and has a slower payback–not always the first pick for the CFO in times of austerity. In this context, Elizabeth will lead a discussion around how CSOs motivate and sell their strategic sustainability investments to their CFO.

When: Tuesday, April 30 7:45am – 8:45am.


- Mark Hawkins, Executive Vice President and CFO, Autodesk
