The shift to sustainability: A CFO’s journey with Karim Hajjar, Chief Financial Officer of Solvay

We’ve covered the shift to sustainable corporate governance from a variety of angles on the podcast so far, and now we turn to the private sector to see what companies are doing. After all, they are a major player to get us beyond “business as usual”.

In this episode, we spoke with Karim Hajjar, Chief Financial Officer of Solvay. He shared with us not only Solvay’s experience of integrating sustainability into its business practices, but also his own personal story of why he believes that value must include more than just the financial bottom line.

On June 21 we will also hold an event on corporate governance with MEP Heidi Hautala as a guest. Further information and registration can be found here.

But first listen to our latest episode, in which we embrace corporate vulnerability as it could mean the end of greenwashing!
