A fairer, more sustainable, and more just future is in everyone’s interests, and the business community can be a valuable partner in building that future.

About ESG

“PenFinancial’s mission to improve lives and strengthen communities has always been at the centre of what we do,” said Theresa Bird, CEO of PenFinancial Credit Union. “We see many local businesses who increasingly want to make a difference, but are unsure where to start, so we were proud to support the creation of this resource.”

“Businesses want to do better for their environment, their customers, and their employees,” said Mishka Balsom, CEO of the GNCC. “They want to govern themselves better and be part of the solution. What we are doing today provides tools with which they can do it. Businesses want to be part of an ethical, sustainable future, and with these resources and the support of our partners, we are helping them do that.”

Presented by PenFinancial Credit Union. Webinar presented by KPMG.

Partners: Living Wage Niagara, Sustainability Leadership
