TORONTO, June 26 /CNW/ - Hydro One has been recognized by Corporate
Knights magazine as one of Canada's Top 50 corporate citizens.
Hydro One's conservation and demand management program was cited as one
of the reasons the company was ranked 26 out of Canada's top 50 corporate
citizens, and third among all Canadian utilities. Hydro One's work leading the
way on Ontario's smart meter program and success in drawing 880,000 customers
to its conservation programs were mentioned at the awards ceremony.
Hydro One was ranked third among utilities in Canada across a variety of
indicators and, "We are proud of this recognition and our high ranking among
utilities in Canada," said Laura Formusa, Acting President & CEO. "Being a
good corporate citizen means doing the right thing. Recognition for our
efforts confirms that we are moving in the right direction and will encourage
us to continue the good work."
The ranking for Best 50 Corporate Citizens is based on environment,
social and governance indicators. The information is gathered and the final
rankings and methodology were reviewed by the accounting firm Deloitte.
Winners were described by Corporate Knights as companies that are doing
the best job at fulfilling their end of the social contract and managing their
specific environmental, social and governance performance when going
head-to-head with their sector peers.
