WSJ: "What are you telling CFOs where to begin and what are some of the implementation issues they face?"
KS: "In addition to finance, the group should include representatives from legal, procurement, supply chain, sustainability, public policy and investor relations to support the effort from a governance structure. From CFOs’ perspective, such broad representation may provide them confidence that they’ve taken the appropriate measures and are in a position to conclude and report in the filings."
