Area of Expertise

Environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) and Sustainable Finance

Jeffrey is a veteran journalist who has reported on many topics from numerous locales over three decades. Since joining The Globe and Mail in 2013, he has covered energy, Western Canadian business, and mergers and acquisitions as both a reporter and a columnist.

His current focus is sustainable finance, and environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues - tracking the flow of money directed at green technology and the transition to a low-carbon economy. His stories within that beat have included investigations into corporate net-zero commitments, ESG ratings and the boom in spending on wind and solar energy projects in Alberta.

Why did you become a journalist?

Journalism affords me the opportunity to look behind the curtain to find both the good and the bad in society, and then to try to demystify those for curious readers. I enjoy the interview process, peeling back layers with subjects and going in directions I didn't, or they didn't, expect. My current beat in the sustainability sphere gives me access to some of the brightest people who have fascinating and often surprising ideas.
