Sustainable Electricity Company Leader™

The Sustainable Electricity Leader™ brand is a designation established by Electricity Canada based primarily on ISO 26000 Guidance on Social Responsibility.

Electricity companies and the communities they serve are increasingly aware of the need for responsible corporate behavior and sustainable development. The Sustainable Electricity Leader™ brand is a designation established by Electricity Canada based primarily on ISO 26000 Guidance on Social Responsibility.

Electricity Canada does not certify companies for ISO 26000, but companies that wish to use the Sustainable Electricity Leader™ brand must commit to core subjects, issues, and related actions and expectations contained in the standard that are deemed applicable and significant to the company and its stakeholders
