Canada ESG – H1 2021

In the inaugural alva ESG index for Canadian companies, we see high scores and a strong overall performance. For most leaders, high scores are driven primarily by the social aspect of ESG. Companies with innovative and wide-reaching initiatives around employee inclusion and those focused on communities on both a local and national scale outperform those that see only industry-specific positivity.

Scotiabank leads the group, driven by its efforts in Human Rights & Community Relations. Scotiabank’s $500m investment into ScotiaRISE to build economic resilience and its scholarship program aiming to increase anti-racism advocates among future lawyers are well received.
