Investors are increasingly incorporating environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors into their investment decision-making process. It is worth noting that data has become an in-demand commodity in order to facilitate this decision making. The top Canadian pension funds are banding together and are pushing Canadian Corporates towards more standardized disclosures and more robust and complete reporting. We have seen the introduction of some new reporting frameworks and the enhancement of existing frameworks but reporting to this point has been voluntary and unaudited. A lack of consistent, comprehensive, and reliable reporting standards inhibits actionable informed investment decisions.
In this session Matthew Ayearst from CGI discusses this important topic with Andrea Carlson, IGM Financial, Julie Park, TMX, Laurie Clark, Onyen and Gordon Beal, Chartered Professional Accountants, Canada
