Alongside institutional investors from coast-to-coast, including our investment manager, the Investment Management Corporation of Ontario (IMCO), this pledge recognizes that climate change presents a major threat to long-term growth and prosperity, and that there is an urgent need to accelerate the transition towards a net-zero economy. The full statement, available here, identifies the actions that Canadian institutional investors, such as OPB and IMCO, are committed to taking to support a just transition that is informed by Indigenous perspectives and supports Indigenous economic opportunities.
OPB reported on its progress on Environmental, Social, and Governance within its 2020 Year-in-Review(opens in a new tab) and will be sharing further news about our progress and plans in this area over the coming months.
