Driving Impact with ESG Programs at BDO Lixar
Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) is a core pillar of value creation for organizations. In today’s world, the actions of organizations are deeply intertwined with environmental, social and governance concerns. Excelling in these three areas is no longer a “nice to have” but a “necessity to do right” and validation among organizational stakeholders is essential. Thus, ESG Programs are integral to maintaining and creating sustainable organizational value and impact.
ESG programs lead to increased efficiencies and optimization, purposeful company-led impact, and higher team engagement. Risks are mitigated through the pursuit of ESG success.
We ask our clients "how are you measuring the health of your supply chain, your energy and renewable energy use and environmental impact, and your company-wide support for good governance and equity, diversity and inclusion?"
Here’s how we help:

BDO's commitment to an Innovative Culture
BDO Lixar is a relationship-driven tech company; we love data as much as we love our close-knit community. While Ottawa and Halifax remain our office hubs, we have adapted to this new reality and have become one team, uniquely remote — unified from coast to coast. Our 1Canada program welcomes everyone, from big cities or small towns, to those looking to come to Canada from all over the world. We are proud to be Canadian and we are always open to new ideas and creative discussions that move innovation and human dialogue forward in a positive way.
In today’s uniquely remote landscape, BDO Lixar is leveraging the lessons we’re learning and putting this new knowledge into actionable results for 2021, and beyond.
In 2020, BDO Lixar took on an exciting new challenge to be active while discovering the beauty of Canada. With our team members spread across the country, the goal was to collectively explore more of Canada, by partaking in various activities in our own necks of the woods, building our kilometres as a team. Not only did we make it across Canada, we actually travelled coast to coast, and back!
We then challenged our data viz team to capture this incredible journey using Power BI, so we can truly see this example of what it means to be one team, uniquely remote. Have a look and experience the power of data visualization!
“What a unique way to see Canada through the eyes of the BDO Lixar community”
2020 brought many challenges, as well as some wins. We’ve learned a lot, and translated these lessons into new ways to connect, communicate, work, and support each other. In the interest of public health and safety, we’ve had to make drastic company-wide changes in going fully remote. In this new normal, many of our work commitments now take place entirely in digital spaces. We’re adapting to new circumstances and adopting new, creative ways to balance the benefits and struggles of living in a remote reality by welcoming walking meetings as an alternative way to connect with your team on any off-screen updates. Inspired by the nature around us, walking meetings are a great time to share what we’re seeing, and how we’re doing.
