BSR and the Mining Association of Canada (MAC) are pleased to invite you to a discussion on how corporate management, investment research, and investment decision-making strategies take into account environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues.

The agenda will feature short presentations and a discussion among panel members, a question-and-answer session, and networking. A panel of experts will examine how sustainable investment decisions can be informed by:

  • Corporate management and disclosure practices
  • Industry standards and frameworks
  • Third-party investor research and the media

This event will be of particular interest to those involved in ESG issues management from the company or investor perspective.
