Align Seamlessly with Canadian ESG Regulations Using EcoActive ESG

Your partner in navigating Canada’s evolving ESG reporting landscape with ease and precision.

In Canada, the drive towards comprehensive Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) disclosure is accelerating, reflecting a global push for increased corporate transparency and accountability. This shift is underscored by initiatives from Canadian regulators, like the Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA), who are intensifying their focus on ESG disclosures, including those related to climate-related risks, corporate governance practices, and social factors that impact not just investors but also the broader community and environment.

The Canadian ESG Regulatory Challenge: Navigating New Frontiers

The Canadian ESG landscape is on the cusp of significant transformation, prompted by the Canadian Sustainability Standards Board (CSSB) releasing two pivotal exposure drafts for comment on March 13, 2024: CSDS 1, addressing general requirements for sustainability-related financial information, and CSDS 2, focusing on climate-related disclosure requirements. These drafts, closely aligned with the International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB) standards issued in June 2023, mark a critical step towards mandatory sustainability reporting in Canada, albeit with certain adaptations for the Canadian context.

CSSB and ISSB: A Convergence Towards Global Standards

While the CSDS drafts currently remain voluntary, their eventual adoption is anticipated to be a benchmark for Canadian regulators crafting mandatory sustainability disclosure rules. The CSSB’s collaboration with ISSB and stakeholders aims to harmonize Canada’s approach with global sustainability disclosure standards, enhancing the quality and comparability of reports across borders. This effort includes adapting ISSB’s global baseline for sustainability-related and climate-related financial disclosures to the unique Canadian landscape, incorporating essential elements such as governance, strategy, and climate resilience while considering the potential for additional Canada-specific amendments.

Preparing for the Evolving Landscape

The trajectory towards mandatory ESG disclosure in Canada is clear, with the CSA revising its initial draft of the first mandatory climate-related disclosure rule (Proposed National Instrument 51-107) in response to the finalized CSSB standards. This focused yet evolving regulatory effort underscores the importance of preparing Canadian companies for comprehensive sustainability reporting, requiring robust data collection and reporting mechanisms.
