The state of ESG (environmental, social, and governance) in Canada and ESG criteria are standards set for the operations of a company. Global investors are now using these criteria to screen their potential investments.

The environmental aspect considers the performance of a company to nature. The social aspect looks at the company’s relationship with its employees, customers, suppliers, and the surrounding communities where they operate. Governance deals with the leadership, audits, executive pay, internal controls, and the rights of the shareholders of a company. 

State ESG in Canada

The natural resource sector of Canada is one of the world leaders in terms of performance in environmental, social, and governance (ESG) criteria. When a company takes measures to improve their ESG performance, they also need documents to show continuous sustainability improvement by these companies as they are also bringing forth evidence that the practices are also being carried out.

These documentations are the required assurance systems, and many natural resource companies in Canada are working to ensure it is improved. In this globally competitive market, Canadian resource companies can keep up production and grow their market share with strong ESG reporting and become suppliers to a market that needs a sustainable resource. 

Canada is one of the largest producers of oil and gas globally, and the Canadian government, in 2018, approved what is known as the Carbon Tax. This Carbon Tax executes two different standards of pricing that are used uniformly across the country.

The first pricing standard, known as a fuel charge, places a charge on fuels, and this charge is determined by the greenhouse gas emitting potential of the gas. The second pricing standard is an output-based pricing system for large industries, and it sets emission reduction targets for these large industries. There are also pricing emissions to the extent of which the target industry does not meet the target. This is meant to encourage the reduction of emissions from large industrial emitters. 

The Canadian government also recognized that methane is a potential source of greenhouse gas emissions. They also developed regulations that are intended to limit methane emission significantly by 2025.

It also has the plan to introduce a clean fuel standard to reduce the emissions and greenhouse gas emission potential from liquid fuels distributed in Canada. The Canadian government has also presented legislation that outlines the process it tends to establish to have achieved net-zero emission by 2050. Some of the largest oil and gas companies in Canada have also aided the government’s effort by voluntarily adopting personal net-zero targets. 

In January 2021, the Capital Markets Modernization Task Force of Ontario officially gave a final report. They recommended a mandatory ESG in Canada disclosure for all non-investment fund issuers complying with the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate Change-Related Financial Disclosure (TFCD). Although the task force’s mandate is only limited to Ontario, it strongly suggested that the Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA) place a uniform standard across all the provinces. In the report, a transition period is suggested on the market capitalization of an issuer. The smallest issuers, those whose market capitalization is under $150 million, have up to five years to comply.

The largest issuers, those with a market capitalization above $500 million, are to comply within two years. The current framework that issuers are expected to work with until there is an imposition of additional ESG-specific guidance makes it compulsory to disclose material information regarding some ESG issues.

When it comes to state of ESG in Canada criteria, Canada is highly ranked among the top 20 oil-producing nations in the world. However, the country rank 2nd in governance and social progress and then 4th in the environment. Nevertheless, oil sand companies in Canada are leading the industry in terms of ESG initiatives. Collectively, they have reduced greenhouse gas emission intensity between 2000 and 2007 by 28% per oil barrel produced, and there is another 16 to 23 percent expected reduction by 2030.

In addition, the forestry sector of Canada switched to a more renewable type of electricity generation, thereby reducing the greenhouse gas emission by 49% between 2005 and 2015.
