To execute sustainability plans smoothly, CFOs should envisage what the demand would be like in the next ten years, Charan said. CFOs should go through the basics and cover the complete value chain to notice each link of the sustainability issues.

A great CFO will create a sustainable capital allocation framework and identify new ways of return on those investments. He also believes that CFOs are responsible for communicating sustainability frameworks to investors.

Ram Charan said: " The job of CEO & CFO will be to find the right balance, have clear priorities, and deliver financial results better than the competition, and at the same time balance interest of selected stakeholders and create a long-term path."
