The growing momentum around ESG issues, and the notion of combining business and societal value that has pervaded markets in recent years, has now reached a tipping point – a dynamic only hastened by the pandemic. Pressure is increasing across the spectrum – from stakeholders, communities and regulatory bodies to financial goliaths like BlackRock and Brookfield – and steering corporate boardroom discussions across the country. Canadian companies that previously saw embedding ESG and sustainability practices into their business as peripheral or “nice to have” are increasingly realizing it is integral and a “must-have.” Investors, regulators, supply chains and consumers are demanding closer attention to ESG, and companies that disregard this trend risk people putting their money elsewhere.

Hari Balasubramanian and Andrew McLaughlin will provide an overview of the emergence of ESG, and discuss key considerations involved in developing an ESG roadmap for your organization.
