We provide support to Canada’s emerging sustainability leaders

Quinn & Partners works with Canada’s emerging sustainability leaders to advise on and support the business integration of corporate sustainability.

Corporate sustainability, sometimes described in terms of triple-bottom-line, green business, corporate (social) responsibility, corporate responsibility and citizenship, is a new business paradigm that enhances business strategy and management to include environmental, human and societal objectives together with the traditional singular financial focus.

Financial market research increasingly correlates superior long-term stock performance with sustainability progressiveness. That means that organizations that integrate sustainability into their business processes offer shareholders increased returns and lower risk. Investors see strong sustainability approaches as a proxy for “good management”.
