In this online edition of the ESG Symposium, with emphasis on small- and medium-sized Canadian businesses, content will be organized and focused around the interconnectivity between the environment and the social. Holding true to the theme, it depicts the complex relationship between our world’s environmental ceilings and the essential pieces that make up our social foundation.
