Measuring our Environmental Performance
We measure our environmental performance by monitoring various indicators. The selection of these indicators is informed by a number of elements, including the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards and requests made by stakeholders, such as the CDP, FTSE4Good and other ESG research organizations.
Data Reporting and Assurance
The environmental data reported in the document below is for the calendar years ended December 31, and is consolidated based on a financial control approach, which includes our major subsidiaries Power Financial, Great-West Lifeco and IGM Financial, as well as our wholly owned subsidiary Square Victoria Real Estate.
We conduct internal and external quality checks to ensure the accuracy of the data reported. To date, our environmental data related to GHG emissions has been verified to a limited level of assurance in accordance with the ISO 14064-3: 2006 Specification, with guidance for the validation and verification of greenhouse gas assertions.
