Maclean’s magazine and Jantzi-Sustainalytics have partnered to present the 50 Top Socially Responsible Corporations in Canada for the third consecutive year. Its findings include the problematic fact that nearly 50 percent of the 100 large-cap Canadian companies surveyed do business in the environmentally unfriendly resource sector, a concentration that causes Canadian companies to be ranked near the bottom of the list for CSR performance of all G7 countries. However, Canada scored ahead of the U.S., and some Canadian companies in the oil and gas sector made the Top 50 SR list, including Suncor Energy, Nexen, and Talisman Energy.

The Just Cause Awards were presented at the Promax BDA Station Summit in Las Vegas last week. Among the winners were NBC Local Media for Earth Week, Education Week, and Green Week programming. The Just Cause awards recognize media leaders for their commitment to nonprofit partnerships, pro-social causes, and local community action.
