Advancing sustainable business practices in Montreal and beyond 

Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) considerations are increasingly important for sustainable business and investment practices. In the past decade, we have seen the creation and adoption of frameworks and standards, an increasing commitment to responsible investing and a shift in regulation and in consumer preferences. Demonstrating leadership in ESG will ultimately become a differentiating factor for organizations.

Navigating this ever-evolving multi-stakeholder and multi-disciplinary landscape is not an easy task. As such, investors, corporations, policy-making organizations, academia and other stakeholders all have an interest in being educated on sustainability from the perspective of financial, marketing, accounting, legal, operations, policy, and more.

Call for Canada to Adopt a Climate-Aligned Financial Policy

The Senate is the unusual suspect with the solution for Canada’s climate and economy


The Climate-Aligned Finance Act, Bill S-234, was introduced in the Senate one-year ago today by Senator Rosa Galvez. The Act would align Canada’s financial system with the country’s climate commitments.


Leading academics have expressed concerns about Canada’s economic stability and competitiveness in a warming and decarbonizing world. Canada’s financial sector is heavily exposed to climate-related risks. This letter, signed by 56 leading Canadian and international academics, calls on Senators to take steps to hold hearings on the Climate Aligned Finance Act (CAFA), an ambitious bill seeking to align Canada’s financial system with its climate ambitions.

Just as Mathematics is traditionally required in subjects such as Finance, Accounting, Physics, Chemistry, Psychology, etc., today Sustainability is equally required in all parts of business. In a transitional sense, Sustainability is the new Math moving us from Roman numerals to Arabic numbers!
