This ACLP seminar will explore the relationship of ESG (Environment, Social and Governance) pertaining to the extractives industries from federal government and human rights perspectives to business, Indigenous and impacted community perspectives. ESG is a broad global topic encompassing relevant and critical concerns to all levels of government, industry and society. Experience tells us that while not all corruption cases involve violations of ESG standards, ESG violations usually involve some form of corrupt activity. For this reason, the Anti-Corruption Law Program has organized this webinar to provide a forum to discuss how compliance with ESG standards can be supported and how related corrupt practices can be addressed.
The establishment of the Canadian Ombuds for Responsible Enterprise (CORE) represents a commitment from the Government of Canada to provide a mechanism that will respond to concerns that are raised about human rights violations by the Canadian extractive and garment industries in their operations and projects.
