In recent years, many Canadian companies have stepped up efforts to lead from the front in terms of improving corporate sustainability. To stand out in a competitive global environment, these companies have accepted the complex challenge of doing more good – not just less bad. The results of these efforts are reflected in the recent Corporate Knights annual list of Global 100 Most Sustainable Companies.

A dozen Canadian firms have earned a position among the top 100 most sustainable companies in the world. The top Canadian company is Tim Hortons Inc., which was placed at number 11 in the list, followed by Teck Resources Ltd. at number 29, Telus Corp. at 37, Bombardier Inc. at 57, and eight others. Canada, along with France and UK were tied in the second spot with 12 companies each, while the U.S. took the first spot with 20 companies on the list.
