Campaign: CSR in Canada

In “CSR in Canada, Part Four,” Lorraine Smith, Director, SustainAbility, describes the main business of Canada as exports of natural resources: oil, gas, minerals, timber, and agricultural products. This fact leads to a strong engagement with environmental issues such as land use, soil preservation, water use, and the effect of development on area surrounding communities. So the focus of Canadian CSR is often on “social responsibility” rather than “corporate.” The fourth in a four-segment interview series.
