The top 50 most socially responsible companies in Canada are getting ahead by putting communities, the environment and their employees at the top of their agendas, reports Maclean’s.

Ten companies emerged at the top of their industries by demonstrating strong performance across important sustainability issues such as resource efficiency, impact on local communities, treatment of employees and responsible supply-chain management: PepsiCo, Kinross Gold, L’Oréal, Intel, Telus, Zara, Vancity, BMW, Koninklijke Philips, and Pacific Rubiales Energy.

“Social responsibility is central to the operations of these companies—they know it’s smart business to consider global issues and the broader community, whether it is through offering discounted loans for electric cars (Vancity) or helping to set up organic cotton seed banks in India (Zara),” the magazine reports.
