Sustainability at Cogeco

At Cogeco, we take immense pride in pursuing our sustainability agenda through the implementation of leading practices. We strive to build a more sustainable and inclusive future through a sustainability strategy aimed at operating responsibly and being a good corporate citizen. This strategy includes commitments centered on the key levers of reducing our environmental footprint, implementing strong governance practices, and supporting our key stakeholders. We track our progress on an ongoing basis through ESG (environmental, social, governance) key performance indicators that are reviewed regularly to ensure relevance. These performance indicators cover 100% of our operations, unless otherwise stated.

Cogeco is proud to be the first telecommunications company in Canada to have targets approved by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). In addition, Cogeco has joined with business leaders representing over $23 trillion in market capitalization to sign the Business Ambition for 1.5°C pledge, an urgent call to action to limit the worst impacts of climate change. We also signed Environment and Climate Change Canada’s Net-Zero Challenge. Both of these commitments include setting a target to achieve net zero emissions across our entire value chain by 2050.
