ESG in B.C.

ESG is the latest evolution of corporate responsibility divided into three focus areas — environmental, social, and governance. The goal of this series is to move B.C. forward in our ESG journey.

The exponential growth and desire for businesses to articulate Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) principles and measurements is a rapidly evolving global business trend and represents a significant opportunity for British Columbia businesses, employers, investors, and entrepreneurs.

Launched on May 17th, the ESG in B.C. series will feature diverse interests and perspectives to explore the progress and possibilities for B.C., the forces driving the evolving ESG frameworks, and the implications for business, supply chains, talent and investors. The series will consist of five virtual sessions, written commentary and digital content, each focusing on different aspects and opportunities for ESG in B.C.
