ESG Global Advisors is pleased to announce that Dustyn Lanz is joining ESG Global Advisors as a Senior Advisor effective on March 14, 2022.

Dustyn was previously Chief Executive Officer of the Responsible Investment Association (RIA), and he is regularly quoted in the media as an expert on ESG and sustainable finance by the Globe and Mail, CBC News, BNN Bloomberg, Investment Executive, Wealth Professional, and other media outlets in Canada and internationally.

In 2021, Dustyn co-developed Climate Engagement Canada – a coalition of 29 institutional investors managing over $3.6 trillion that engages with Canada’s highest-emitting corporations to promote a just transition to a net-zero economy. In 2020, Dustyn led the development of the Canadian Investor Statement on Diversity & Inclusion – an anti-racism pledge signed by 45 institutional investors managing over $4 trillion in assets.

“We are thrilled to welcome Dustyn to the team. He brings a wealth of diverse experience working with institutional investors on key focus areas for our firm’s clients, including climate change and diversity, equity and inclusion,” says Sarah Keyes, CEO of ESG Global Advisors. “Dustyn will support ESG Global Advisors contributions to the public dialogue on ESG and responsible investment as a prolific writer, public speaker, and content creator.”

In 2021, Dustyn announced his departure from the RIA to focus on his personal health and wellness journey. ESG Global is proud to offer a work environment that fosters a supportive environment for our employees that actively considers their physical and mental well-being. As an ESG advisory firm, we believe it is important to demonstrate our commitment to human capital management for our team members.

“I am pleased to join an impressive team of ESG and climate experts who are helping investors and companies navigate the rapidly evolving ESG landscape,” said Dustyn. “This role will enable me to continue making a meaningful impact in the ESG space while giving me the capacity to focus on my wellness journey. I am excited to help advance the market from this new vantage point, and I look forward to contributing to the continued growth of ESG Global Advisors.”
