Presentation

The Sustainable Development Goals: An Opportunity for Business

Companies have taken stock of the SDGs, recognizing the potential to support them in enhancing their license to operate, innovate and grow. Few companies have conducted a detailed examination of the SDGs at target-level, and relatively few companies seem to be considering how they can contribute to the SDGs through addressing negative impacts, or through engaging with their value chain.

This presentation is co-hosted with Patti Dolan, Portfolio Manager with Mission Wealth Advisors of Raymond James Ltd; Mel Wilson, President of MJ Wilson Inc. Sustainability Management Consultants; and, Yvonne Jeffery, Manager Sustainability, Community Investment and Communications with Vermilion Energy.
