Canada fares poorly in sustainability

Morningstar Sustainability Atlas: Canada places in the fourth quintile, Northern Europe leads the way, and China finds itself at the bottom of the rankings because of poor corporate governance

The latest edition of the Morningstar Sustainability Atlas finds, on the whole, that Northern Europe leads the way when it comes to corporate-level sustainability, with Finland taking top spot overall.

Portugal scored the highest on environment, followed by Denmark for social criteria, and the Netherlands for governance. On the other end of the spectrum, author Valerio Baselli finds China at the bottom of the rankings across all three ESG criteria.

Canada’s sustainability score dragged down an otherwise average ESG performance.
