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.

While evaluation of environmental and social risk has gained significant traction, ensuring that analysis and reporting frameworks are consistent and relevant continues to be a challenge for investors and companies alike. 

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.

  • Stephen Kibsey, Senior PM, Caisse de Dépôt et Placement du Québec
  • Michelle McCulloch, Associate Director, Sustainalytics
  • Ed Opitz, Vice President, Corporate Responsibility, Kinross
  • Alison Taylor, Managing Director, Sustainability Management, BSR
