Sustainability

Overview

At Wildeboer Dellelce, we recognize the vital role of sustainability in today’s world. Our approach to sustainable corporate strategy and risk management is rooted in integrating key factors that shape a company’s societal and ethical impact. We specialize in advising on sustainable business and governance practices, stakeholder engagement, meeting public issuer disclosure obligations, and assisting issuers in building impactful community relations. Our team helps clients practically navigate the complexities of sustainability opportunities and risk management, focusing on efficient resource use and corporate responsibility.

 

Our governance expertise includes advising on board governance, best practices, transparency and functionality. We assist clients in engaging stakeholders, preparing for stakeholder activism, and ensuring investor relations and public disclosure compliance. In providing legal advice, we are mindful of the practical regulatory, public policy, and strategic aspects crucial for management, directors, and stakeholders.

 

Our sustainability expertise is particularly vital to natural resource companies navigating increasing stakeholder expectations and standards in the sector. We specialize in crafting sustainability strategies that address the specific needs and challenges of our resource company clients. Our services include developing sustainability plans, evaluating risk, managing potential liabilities, transparency reporting, and their impacts on stakeholders. Our commitment is to assist our clients in promoting sustainable growth in an increasingly sustainability-focused environment.

 

Many Government of Canada initiatives in environmental sustainability, particularly the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Offset Credit System, are designed to encourage municipalities, Indigenous communities, foresters, farmers, and other project developers to undertake projects that significantly reduce GHG emissions. We provide legal guidance on project development, ensuring compliance with the Canadian Greenhouse Gas Offset Credit System Regulations and the applicable federal offset protocols. We also advise on the trading and utilization of federal offset credits, which are tradeable units representing verified GHG reductions.

 

Wildeboer Dellelce also advises on sustainability-driven corporate finance opportunities, such as green investment strategies, cleantech development and other emerging areas, aligning our client’s financial strategies with sustainability goals.
