ESG matters to young Canadian workers

April 10, 2024

ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) is a crucial consideration for employment among young workers, according to a recent report.

Overall, 87 per cent of British Columbians aged 18 to 34 years old say they prefer to work for socially and environmentally responsible companies, reports the British Columbia Automobile Association (BCAA).

And 61 per cent say they will only work for responsible companies.

“Many Gen Zs are challenging companies to do and be better and I believe that bodes well for the future of work as well as how companies run their businesses. It’s certainly a competitive advantage for those who get it right,” says Shawn Pettipas, BCAA’s director of corporate purpose.

More companies are recognizing the positive business case for ESG, according to a previous report.
