Balance ESG compliance with value creation 

The global energy ecosystem is changing. Energy companies in Canada are striving for net zero carbon emissions and making positive environmental and social impacts, all while balancing business objectives with the pressing need to meet investor expectations.

It has become crucial for your energy company to invest in and report on its Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESP) initiatives. It’s how you communicate the urgency your organization places on sustainability and how you quantify and validate your sustainability efforts to stakeholders.

With investors shifting to sophisticated screening strategies, you need to provide reporting that adheres to emerging standards and frameworks to earn their trust and thrive in this evolving economy. MNP’s ESG team will combine experience with expertise to help you map your ESG journey in line with best practices, ensuring that you meet your strategic and sustainability goals concurrently.
