Mission

The Centre’s mandate is to provide innovative, rigorous, and practically relevant research on corporate governance and sustainability. More specifically, the Centre’s mandate focuses on how global companies navigate changing governance obligations including the need to address environmental and social obligations.

Main Activities

The Centre bridges research and practice in the areas of governance and sustainability through the development of resources and tools for practitioners, seminars, public dialogues, conferences, visiting scholars and the Centre’s website. In executing on this mandate, the Centre also seeks to facilitate productive national and international knowledge exchange among scholars and practitioners addressing corporate governance and sustainability issues. We currently have two key projects underway:

The Next Generation Governance Project (sponsored by CPA Canada) examines how global companies navigate changing governance obligations including the need to address environmental and social obligations.

The Embedding Project brings together an international community of researchers and practitioners to develop and pilot rigorous but practical guidance on embedding sustainability that benefits everyone.
