MLT Aikins is pleased to announce the launch of our Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance (ESG) practice group, designed to help clients develop comprehensive, meaningful ESG strategies.
Public, private and governmental organizations across Canada are facing greater scrutiny than ever before about the role they’re playing in creating a sustainable future, both for the environment and society at large. Investors, financial institutions and other stakeholders are demanding meaningful disclosure on how organizations are addressing ESG risks. For publicly traded companies, ESG strategies are now critical to accessing capital, and private companies are increasingly being asked to demonstrate their commitment to improving ESG performance
Our ESG team is led by Calgary lawyer Conor Chell, who is joined by Samina Ullah in Saskatoon. Conor and Samina have significant experience advising clients in a broad range of sectors, including carbon-intensive industries such as energy and mining, on developing ESG strategies and identifying ESG risks and opportunities.
“We’re pleased to launch our ESG practice group not only to help clients meet growing demands for better ESG disclosure, but to help position them as the sustainable leaders of the future,” Conor said. “My personal and professional goal is to live life with purpose and lead broad, positive change. I know that our clients feel the same way.”
The MLT Aikins ESG practice group offers numerous services to help clients position themselves as leaders in sustainability, including ESG strategy assessment, peer benchmarking, recommendations for ESG metrics and practical advice on achieving E, S and G goals.
