Corporate Knights honors responsible business


Stantec has been named one of Corporate Knights’ 2020 Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations in the World. The annual ranking acknowledges companies that implement responsible business practices based on environmental, social, and governance (ESG) indicators. Global 100 companies represent the top 1% in the world on sustainability performance.

The rankings were announced January 21 during the World Economic Forum, held in Davos, Switzerland. For 2019, Stantec ranks 57th overall. Stantec has also been named one of Canada’s Best 50 Corporate Citizens by Corporate Knights on seven occasions.

The leading ranking of corporate citizenship, Corporate Knights ranks companies based on key performance indicators covering resource conservation, employee management, financial management, clean revenue, and supplier performance. Ranking is based on publicly disclosed data. To determine the ranking, Corporate Knights analyzed 7,395 companies against global industry peers.

“Sustainability is core to Stantec, from the impact of our operations, to our philanthropy, to the services we provide to clients,” says Carrie Sabin, Stantec’s sustainability director. “We are proud of our long history of being listed on Canada’s Best 50 and are thrilled to now be recognized on the Global 100. This recognizes Stantec’s strategy to address climate change impacts, our progress on gender equality, our investment in innovation, and our commitment to health and safety.”
