Corporate Knights, a magazine focused on sustainability, has included again this year the STM in a select group of Canadian enterprises that stand out thanks to their exemplary responsible practices. In a ranking released today, the STM is ranked sixth among the Best 50 Corporate Citizens in Canada. The STM is the only road passenger transportation enterprise to make the list.
To establish its Best 50 Corporate Citizens in Canada ranking, Corporate Knights analysed the sustainability and social responsibility performance of 273 Canadian corporations with revenues over $1 billion.
All were evaluated and compared to international industry peers on a set of up to 21 environmental, social and governance indicators, using publicly available information. The STM scored no 1 out of 39 companies in the road passenger transportation sector, and the only one to make the list.
The STM stands out for its clean revenues, thanks to the proportion of trips made on its network using electricity. The STM also scores high under good governance, especially in terms of the presence of women on its Management Committee and Board of Directors.
