(3BL Media) July 11, 2012 - Canada’s Export Credit Agency Releases CSR Report

Export Development Canada (EDC), Canada's Export Credit Agency, has issued its eighth Annual Report on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).  This year’s report uses an increasing number of videos to tell EDC’s CSR story.  Three videos provide insight into EDC’s customers, their approaches to CSR and how they work with EDC, another highlights the Chair in Environmental Finance at the University of Waterloo, and finally, Signi Schneider, EDC’s Chief Corporate Social Responsibility Advisor provides the overarching message for 2011, Building Resilience Responsibly.

“This year’s report illustrates that, even during uncertain economic times, an effective CSR program can make a company more resilient, including being the first export credit agency and first Canadian financial institution to be represented on the Steering Committee of the Equator Principles, establishing Clean tech as a corporate priority and developing a more streamlined approach to human rights assessments.” said Ms. Schneider.

Highlights of this year’s report include:

  • more content on EDC’s contribution to Canada’s GDP and job creation;
  • an overview of EDC’s environmental and social review process for corporate loans; and
  • feedback from an external advisory group on EDC’s CSR reporting practices.

To reduce EDC’s operational footprint, this detailed report is only available online.
