The Co-operators and Sustainability
As an insurer, employer, investor, community partner, and a co-operative, The Co-operators believes that we can and must lead the way in ensuring a sustainable future. To us, sustainability is about balancing economic, social and environmental priorities as a responsible corporate citizen.
In the first phase of our Sustainability Strategy from 2008-2010, we focused on “getting our house in order”; walking the talk by embedding sustainable practices into our business operations and decision-making processes, setting clear goals, and plans of action and measurement to achieve those goals.
Our current Sustainability Strategy is more outwardly focused, as we strive to become a catalyst for a sustainable society. This powerful move from planning to action has happened as a result of the engagement and efforts of our employees, our executives, our Board of Directors and our key stakeholders.
