TORONTO, June 14, 2012 /CNW/ - Canadian Tire Corporation, Limited (CTC,
CTC.a) is proud to announce that it has been included on the 2012
Maclean's/Sustainalytics list of the 50 Most Socially Responsible
Companies in Canada.
Now in its fifth year, companies are selected on the basis of their
performance across a broad range of environmental, social, and
governance (ESG) indicators tracked by Sustainalytics, a global leader
in independent sustainability research. The companies selected also
rank at the top of their respective peer groups in Sustainalytics'
Global Platform. Published annually, the Top 50 Most Socially
Responsible Companies are profiled in the June 25th issue of Maclean's Magazine, which is available on newsstands today.
This honour adds to a growing list of acknowledgments and awards
bestowed upon Canadian Tire for programs and performance related to
business sustainability and corporate social responsibility. Last
week, the company was recognized by Corporate Knights as one of the
Best 50 Corporate Citizens in Canada. Canadian Tire's business
sustainability strategy and performance were recognized earlier in the
year with the GLOBE Award for Best Green Retailing Practices, which is
considered to be the most high-profile national awards series of its
kind. The company was also added to the STOXX Global ESG Leaders Index
family and is the only Canadian retailer included.
For 90 years and as one of Canada's most trusted companies, Canadian
Tire remains committed to being a responsible corporate citizen - in
the environment, the community and in business. This commitment is
integrated into Canadian Tire's brand, corporate values, operations and
business strategy and is guided by the overarching aspiration to be a
good neighbour in helping Canadian communities grow.
