The STM ranks 4th among the Best 50 Corporate Citizens in Canada according to Corporate Knights, a magazine focused on sustainability.
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 4th among the Best 50 Corporate Citizens in Canada, its best result to date. The STM is the only transit and ground 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 287 Canadian corporations with revenues over $1 billion.
All were evaluated and compared to international industry peers on a set of 25 environmental, social and governance indicators. The best 50 were then retained. The STM scored first among international corporations of the transit and ground transportation sector.
The STM stands out for its clean revenues and low green house gas emissions, thanks to the proportion of trips made on its metro and bus network using electricity, and its GHG reduction targets.
