Corporate Sustainability: Our Responsibility Today for a Sustainable Tomorrow

AGF has been bringing stability to the world of investing since 1957. And to ensure our own stability and the continued longevity of our firm, we recognize that responsible and sustainable corporate practices must continue to influence the shape of our organization.

Guided by the thinking, “Our Responsibility Today for a Sustainable Tomorrow,” we have developed a corporate responsibility framework that applies forward-thinking practices related to key sustainability factors to deliver long-term successful outcomes for each of our stakeholders.

We have identified the following key areas of focus that we believe are central to our firm’s long-term success:

Recognizing that client and market expectations continue to evolve, we remain committed to our guiding principles of shared intelligence, taking a measured approach and having active accountability. These principles continue to guide us, shaping our practices and approach while we strive to deliver successful outcomes in support of our stakeholders.

As part of this commitment, a multi-year project is underway to enhance AGF’s corporate sustainability practices:   A comprehensive set of metrics have been identified for AGF to track over the short-, medium-, and long-term timeframes.
  AGF is enhancing processes and governance for managing and monitoring the risks and opportunities related to these factors.
  Finally, AGF is working to improve the firm’s ESG-related disclosures to provide more decision-useful information to financial stakeholders while meeting increasing regulatory requirements.

Our commitment to responsible and sustainable practices is formalized through the AGF Sustainability Council, chaired by Judy Goldring, President and Head of Global Distribution. The Council provides oversight of the firm’s policies, programs and related risks that concern key public policy and corporate sustainability matters, including public issues of significance to AGF and its stakeholders that may affect AGF’s business, strategy, operations, performance and/or reputation.
