The Advisory Council was established in 2001 to provide strategic advice to our executive on evolving best-in-class ESG practices.
Helping us do business, better
As Canada’s export credit agency, we understand that strong governance, including accountability, oversight and transparency, is integral to our business. Our ESG Advisory Council, composed of prominent experts across a variety of fields, is an important part of our good governance. It serves as a sounding board and as a challenge function to ensure we are considering a wide range of stakeholder perspectives on ESG-related topics material to EDC.
The Council heard from Canada’s Chief Negotiator for Climate Change and engaged with the executive team on climate-related priorities ahead of EDC’s participation at COP26 meetings in Glasgow.
