By signing the Declaration, these organizations are also using their collective financial strength to encourage other financial institutions to join together to inspire more sustainable economic growth and reduce their environmental impact.“We are proud to join these other financial stewards in calling on publicly-traded companies in Canada to commit to disclosing more information on their exposure to climate change risks, and how they will manage these risks moving forward,” said Peter Lindley, head of State Street Global Advisors Canada. “In signing this Declaration, State Street Global Advisors reaffirms our commitment to ESG efforts that will help to initiate greater transparency around climate change disclosure principals.”
