Investors, shareholders and regulators are increasingly demanding more transparency from businesses on their sustainability and social performance. How are Canadian corporations changing the way they measure, value and report on their environmental, social and governance (ESG) risks and progress?

On January 18, 2022, The Globe and Mail hosted a webcast that explored these themes and provided insights on corporate reporting and goal-setting in the climate change era. The webcast was part of The Globe and Mail’s climate change event series.
