Sarah Keyes of ESG Global Advisors will lead a presentation on Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) issues, which are top of mind for investors and companies alike. Increased investor attention to the financial and operational impacts of ESG risks and opportunities is putting pressure on companies to develop ESG strategies and provide transparent reporting on the management of ESG issues to their stakeholders. This session will discuss the implications of these megatrends for the Canadian buildings and real estate sectors.
