Corporate Governance

Identifying & Managing Risk

Although governance is one of the three pillars of ESG – and is arguably the foundation of any good ESG strategy – companies often lack an adequate governance structure to properly provide the oversight and guidance that is needed throughout an organization.

Improving a company’s governance can often be addressed with some simple yet important components, such as a committee that provides dialogue and direction on a company’s ESG strategy, or policies or procedures that outline specific expected behaviours and expectations on related ESG topics. 

Our experience leading sustainable infrastructure projects is built upon developing awareness of ESG challenges at a governance level. Occupying a unique position as both technology integrators and sustainability leaders reveals real-world opportunities and adds credibility to your ESG program.  

Governance Guidance & Support

To improve governance, we first need to build awareness of the impact of climate change, become cognizant of business risks, and challenge our own confirmation biases. From here we work to develop appropriate communication channels that align with business objectives and represent your culture.

  1. Create a customized education plan for your business and then present it to your board, C-suite, managers, and staff. See workshops below.
  2. Assist with the formation and drafting of policies in support of your ESG Goals.
  3. Establish direction for, or enhancement of, a relevant committee or council (i.e. ESG, Sustainability, Climate change/Energy Transition, Inclusion & Diversity, Indigenous)


Following these three basic steps, we maintain momentum with regular check-ins and can help train staff to develop advanced ESG initiatives.

  • Establishment of Committee/Council

  • Policy Development:
    •  Sustainability Policy
    • Indigenous Procurement & Recruitment Policy
    • Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
    • Human Rights Policy
    • Privacy Policy
  • Board / C-Suite / Manager ESG Workshops:
    • Basic/intro to ESG
