Canada’s natural resource sector already enjoys a world-leading record for overall environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance. However, resource companies involved in natural resource production have recognized that merely doing the right thing is no longer enough.
Actions taken on improving ESG need to be coupled with the documentation that shows these companies are making a continuous improvement on sustainability while providing evidence that those practices are being delivered on the ground. Many natural resource companies in Canada are now in the midst of building or improving on these assurance systems.
With strong ESG reporting, Canadian resource companies can maintain their production in an increasingly competitive global trading system while growing their market share and becoming suppliers of choice for those wanting to source goods from a sustainable, responsible source.
