ESG & Risk: Lessons from TransAlta’s Transition

The business strategies of companies increasingly need to prioritize environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance, balancing the organization’s short-term profitability with the environment and interests of stakeholders. Although challenging, the increased focus on non-financial performance has created an opportunity for some companies to develop a competitive advantage by integrating ESG (sustainability) considerations into governance, risk management and day-to-day operations.

On October 4, 2021, the Enbridge Research in Action Seminar series presented a panel discussion with the following experts:

  • John Kousinioris, CEO of TransAlta
  • Dr. Anne Kleffner, Professor and Chair of Insurance and Risk Management at the Haskayne School of Business
  • Dr. Yrjo Koskinen, Associate Dean of Research and the BMO Professor in Sustainable and Transition Finance at the Haskayne School of Business
