“Our continued ranking as one of Canada’s Best 50 Corporate Citizens confirms that our long-standing commitment to advancing ESG is making a real impact towards a more sustainable future,” said Gord Johnston, president and CEO. “ESG is considered in every aspect of our operations, and is truly driven by all of our employees. It is at the heart of what we do and is key to transforming the future of our communities.”

Earlier this year, Stantec was ranked number one in its peer group and seventh overall in the Corporate Knights Global 100 most sustainable companies rankings, which recognizes business practices based on ESG indicators.
