Meet Our ESG Consultants.

Public and private sector practices are evolving as society adapts to new circumstances. The growing importance of Environmental considerations coupled with a more Socially responsible, diverse and inclusive workforce. This directly translates into more robust Governance practices and accountability which impacts on business sustainability.

Many of our ESG Consultants have been the architects and implementers of ESG and Equity, Diversity, Inclusion and Accessibility (EDIA) policies within federal government departments and specialized operating agencies. They continue to be champions of these policies within the business and government communities.

Environment and the Greening of Defence.

Canadian National Defence activities account for a substantial portion of a government’s total greenhouse gas emissions. As with all governments, the Canadian federal government is working on policies to significantly reduce and diversify its energy consumption while reducing GHG emissions and other pollutants. 

We advise leaders and organizations on the overall environmental policy direction of the government. Specifically, on how to best contribute to, and benefit from its greening initiatives, funding programs and application of green technology to enable government organizations to meet their environmental targets and operational requirements.

GBA +, Equity, Diversity, Inclusion and Accessibility (EDIA)

The Canadian labour market is evolving, and with that Canadian employers need to keep pace. We advise clients on the adaptation, creation, implementation and tracking of EDI policies and initiatives. We specialize in helping you align your business practices with government EDI policies, programs, and procurement. This will maximize your organization’s effectiveness, while responding to government expectations. 

For example, we can support your organization in answering procurement proposal responsibilities on GBA + and EDI and accessibility requirements and, provide guidance and advice on its appropriate application.

Governance Best Practices

Sustainable business requires the benefits of a green, diverse, equitable and inclusive operation. Progressive and organized corporate oversight must be implemented with best practices in mind.  

For instance, we provide support on aligning organizational leadership with corporate ethics and confidentiality codes of conduct, which may include lobbying elected and appointment Public Officer Holders and external stakeholders including aboriginal communities, underrepresented groups and the 2SLGBTQI+ community.
