The Clean Capitalism Report 2010 is now available for UBC researchers interested in Canadian corporate social responsibility to explore in both online and print form.

This important 150 page report on environmental, social and governance practices of Canada’s largest companies is based on the results of a quantitative research project conducted by Corporate Knights and the Delphi Group for the Globe and Mail’s Report on Business Corporate Responsibility Ranking

Each company on the S&P/TSX 60 is analyzed against four environmental, three governance and five social indicators.  The resulting company analysis provides a brief outline of the company’s business, its major sustainability priorities, and shows how it has performed across these twelve indicators.  The report also includes a sector by sector analysis, identifying trends, major issues and impacts, best practices, and areas for improvement.
