There has been an increased focus on environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues in Canada and abroad. Corporate Canada and government organizations face growing pressure, both from a business perspective and a reputational perspective, to consider the ESG impact of their investments, particularly around climate change.
Pension funds are being asked to report to their members on how they incorporate ESG impacts in their investments. BLG has contributed to the Eversheds Sutherland report, “An international perspective: ESG and pensions guide” to highlight issues relevant to Canada.
Please reach out to the author or your BLG lawyer with any questions on how ESG and pension issues may impact your business.
