Environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues are important for businesses around the world as the legal and regulatory landscape changes and ESG expectations of investors, customers, employees and other stakeholders grow. 

Now more than ever, businesses are adopting ESG measures and investors are incorporating ESG criteria into their investment assessments and valuation decisions. In turn, investors perceive companies with strong sustainability programs as an indicator of sound and reliable performance going forward.

Our Canadian Sustainability and ESG hub provides practical guidance, timely updates and strategic insights to help you thrive in the present and navigate the evolving legal and regulatory landscape. 

We are here to support your journey towards a sustainable future.

Our commitment to sustainability

We aim to minimize our impact on the environment – to protect the planet, ensure that resources are available for future generations and create a better quality of life for all living beings. We integrate sustainability best practice into all our decision-making and business activities. We recognize our responsibility to address environmental issues that jeopardize the earth’s ecosystems and the future of our communities and as a firm we work on reducing our environmental footprint and are active on many pro bono projects in the areas of sustainability.

Norton Rose Fulbright supports the Sustainable Development Goals. We have adopted the UN Sustainable Development Goals as our overarching guiding principles. With the goals being the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all, we focus on those where we can have the greatest impact.
