Climate Action

 

"Climate change calls for urgent action, and our industry must come forward and commit. Intentions are a key ingredient, but the true measure of success will be our strategies and actions in the months ahead. As we build out and implement our plan, we will be transparent in reporting on our progress."

Oricia Smith, President, SLGI Asset Management Inc., and Senior Vice-President, Investment Solutions, Sun Life Canada

Engagement versus divestment

We recognize the importance of the Oil & Gas and Natural Resource sectors to our domestic economy, workforce and communities. As such, we generally favour engagement over divestment. We want to encourage companies that earn revenue from carbon-intensive products and/or services to transform their business models to align to a more climate-friendly world and resilient ecosystem.
