Corporate social responsibility and diversity and inclusion are growing parts of the treasurer’s remit. TMI’s recent Treasury4Good Awards highlighted some of the innovative projects taking place in this space, stimulated debate on building a sustainable and inclusive treasury function, and paid tribute to a treasury legend.

Kicking off with a passionate speech from Angie Pankhania, Acting Director, Finance and Governance, United Nations Association – UK, about the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the Treasury4Good Awards evening was a learning opportunity for corporates and banks alike. Pankhania spoke in depth about the need for greater action from the corporate sector around supporting and embodying the SDGs. She also outlined the benefits of operating sustainably, emphasising that there is no longer a need to compromise on profit or responsible business – in fact, sustainable businesses are outperforming their less forward-thinking counterparts, she explained.
