Engaging with all of our stakeholders is essential for us to understand our stakeholders’ needs and create the value they’re seeking. So we’re listening and responding to their views on responsible business. Dialogue with our stakeholder groups is central to being a responsible business.
Because there are so many possible priorities for our corporate responsibility programs, we focus on the material issues to our business – the things that matter most. Within Canada we’ve chosen to focus on four quadrants where we feel we can achieve the most significant outcomes and impacts: responsible business; people, diversity and inclusion; community engagement; and environmental stewardship – areas that have also been agreed upon globally. The approach for defining material issues, generally involves dialogue with our stakeholders and leadership, as well as an assessment of our market conditions.
For further details on our initial materiality assessment, please visit our website: pwc.com/ca/cr In FY2013 we plan to broaden our engagement with our stakeholders and conduct an updated materiality assessment to better link our CR approach, reassess our risks and opportunities, ensure alignment with our business goals and guide the implementation of our new CR strategy. We will report back on the results of these efforts in our next Corporate Responsibility Highlights document.
