In Canada, our people and our planet matter to us. Canada has committed to leveraging the technologies and energy systems needed to reach net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. Canada is a world leader in renewable power generation and leads the globe in creating sustainable industries. This integrated approach to sustainability makes Canada the ideal place for global business leaders looking for the right opportunities and conditions to drive a greener, more inclusive future.
Environment, social and governance (ESG) in Canada
Canada is committed to scaling up existing technologies and developing new solutions to meet its ambitious targets of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 and achieving net zero emissions by 2050.
Canada’s workforce is educated, highly-skilled and racially diverse, speaking over 200 languages. Recognizing that diverse teams are smarter and perform better, Canada became the first country to promote representation of women, Indigenous people, people with disabilities and visible minorities. Canada’s requirement that businesses disclose information on diversity of management continues to drive measurable progress on workplace diversity. Gender identity and expression are also enshrined in the Canadian Human Rights Act.
Canada’s investment in sustainability has made it a global leader in green energy incentives. This leadership position translates into globally competitive initiatives, such as the renewable energy investment tax credit, which provides a 30% tax break on renewable technologies.
