Fortis is among the Best 50 Corporate Citizens in Canada - #24 out of 242 Canadian companies with revenues over $1 billion evaluated on a set of ESG indicators, and #1 in terms of having the largest three-year carbon emissions reduction.

  • Sustainability
  • Environment

Fortis was recently named one of Canada’s Best 50 Corporate Citizens based on corporate sustainability performance.

Each year, Corporate Knights, a specialized media and investment research firm, ranks Canadian companies with an annual revenue of over $1 billion on up to 21 indicators covering resource, employee, financial management, clean revenue and supplier performance. This is the first year Fortis was evaluated and it ranked 24 out of 242 companies. Of the 14 new companies added to the list this year, Fortis earned 2nd place. Fortis was the top organization on the list in terms of having the largest three-year carbon emissions reduction.

In today’s energy market, sustainability extends well beyond corporate social responsibility activity; it is a business ethos. Our commitment to sustainable practice has remained front and centre for more than 130 years. According to President and CEO, Barry Perry, sustainability is the golden thread that runs through every decision while growing Fortis throughout North America. We are mindful of the impact our operations have on the environment, employees and the communities we serve, and we take planned steps to strengthen our business in a responsible and sustainable way.
