Controlling Conference Switzerland CTS: See you again on September 20, 2023 in Rotkreuz

That was Conference 2022

Sustainability controlling in focus

Climate change affects us all. Companies not only have to meet social, political and regulatory sustainability goals, they are also held accountable by customers and employees. Society has recognized the need for a sustainable lifestyle and demands it from companies. Companies face the challenge of reconciling economic goals with ecological, social and cultural goals.

A correspondingly set up management system is required for the implementation of the goals and the management of sustainable business models. In addition to financial key figures, ESG criteria must be taken into account and included in reports. The sustainability transformation also has implications for the controlling role profile and the controlling competence model.

This year's Controlling Conference Switzerland focuses on sustainability controlling. Speakers from different industries show how they approach and implement the topic of sustainability in finance and controlling. Using clear practical examples, CFOs and controllers present the effects of sustainability on finance and controlling and the opportunities that arise from this.

The Controlling Conference Switzerland is organized by the Swiss work groups of the ICV in cooperation with the Institute for Financial Services Zug IFZ. Together we want to combine practical experience with current research results and make this knowledge available to controllers and practitioners interested in finance.

Conference language is German.

Sustainability is also one of the ICV topics of the year. More information here.

Sustainability: From a marginal issue to a success and competitive factor

Dr. Möhrer, you will be a speaker at this year's Controlling Conference Switzerland. The event is entitled "Controlling between profitability and sustainability - how controlling can contribute to the success of sustainable corporate management". To what extent is the topic important to you?

For several years now, we have seen how sustainability is increasingly moving from being a marginal issue to core business processes. Sustainability is increasingly becoming a success and competitive factor for companies, which also means that questions of planning, management and reporting are coming into focus.

Why is the topic important for Swiss controllers? What can the participants of the conference expect from your presentation?

We don’t know yet to what extent and in what way the developments at the level of the European Union will specifically influence controlling in Switzerland. One factor will certainly be the extent to which the business partners based in the EU pass on the requirements of sustainability regulations to the value chains and how the financial sector positions itself in this regard.

The ICV has developed goal-oriented, practical and implementable solutions with the "Green Controlling for Responsible Business" Expert Work Group for over 10 years. What highlights do you see here?

The Expert Work Group "Green Controlling for Responsible Business" deals with current topics in the field of sustainability controlling and develops solution-oriented concepts for the controlling community for their implementation. The basics of sustainability controlling were already described in 2014 with the "Green Controlling" guide. For about two years we have been dealing intensively with issues relating to sustainable finance. In particular the EU taxonomy plays a prominent role here.

Portrait of the conference

The CTS has been organized by the Swiss work groups of the ICV (International Association of Controllers) since 1990, since 2017 with the Institute for Financial Services Zug IFZ. Together we want to combine practical experience with current research results and make this knowledge available to controllers and financially interested practitioners.

The conference addresses controllers, finance and controlling executives, CFOs, project managers and business analysts from all sectors who are involved in or affected by the topic. Participants can be inspired by current research results and specific practical experience.
