Please join Gowling WLG and Export Development Canada (EDC) for an engaging virtual panel discussion focused on Canadian ESG in investing and lending. The panel will touch on ESG in the context of our current market, as well as key considerations and upcoming developments in Canadian ESG.

Topics will include:

  • An overview of the current ESG landscape, and the importance of distinct Indigenous ("I") elements in Canadian ESG discussions and implementation
  • Emerging trends in the Canadian market, such as sustainability linked deals and support for energy transition
  • ESG financial analysis and due diligence, including a focus on growing risks and opportunities tied to "S" factors in supply chains
  • The expanding importance of social and governance considerations in addition to the more common environmental factors, and the over weave of Indigenous consideration in all three
  • Identifying and funding opportunities for start-ups in cleantech, Indigenous and other ventures
