This highly interactive session provided an overview of a recent study by Hudson Gain Corporation on The Role of the Chief Sustainability Officer in Corporations, as well as a panel discussion with executives who were interviewed in the study and who lead Sustainability efforts in their companies. Participants will engage with panel members, study authors and faculty from the Institute for Sustainable Enterprise (ISE) at Fairleigh Dickinson University (FDU) in table discussions around such topics as:
· What challenges does a Chief Sustainability Officer (CSO) face in this economy?
· How can a CSO help your organization thrive in these tough times?
· Is this a good time to hire or appoint a CSO?
· Should you promote a CSO from within—or recruit from the outside?
· Whether you “build” or “buy” a CSO, what are the roles, requirements and criteria?
· How does today’s economy impact how you structure and lead Sustainability?
· If Sustainability is “everyone’s job,” is there a need for a staff/function as well?
