ESG for technology leaders
Learn why the CIO is the unlikely leader of your ESG strategy.
The renewed urgency of sustainability mandates has leaders scrambling, wondering where to start, what to measure and how to get the environmental, social and governance (ESG) data they need. An unlikely figure has emerged from the C-suite as pivotal to these efforts: the CIO.
Traditionally filling a supporting role, CIOs rose to newfound prominence during the pandemic. As a result, IT now underpins nearly all lines of business and CIOs stand at the crossroads of drafting and implementing ESG strategies for their entire organization.
In today’s environment, companies can’t go at sustainability alone. They need to bring together all their stakeholders, including their customers. As the amount of customer data exploded, EY helped build the infrastructure and move to the cloud to be able to handle that data and turn it into information and insights to better serve the customer.
