May 24 /CSRwire/ - May 24, 2007- Export Development Canada (EDC), Canada’s export credit agency, has published its 3rd Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Report.
The report highlights EDC’s progress at consolidating a number of CSR initiatives introduced previously, particularly in the areas of environmental review and transparency. These are increasingly important areas given the growth of EDC’s business in emerging markets.
The strength of the 2006 report is its use of project profiles which help to illustrate how EDC’s environmental review procedures are applied in practice. Project profiles include a copper mine in Africa, airport construction in Cyprus and equity financing for a wind energy project.
Founded in 1944, EDC offers innovative commercial solutions to help Canadian exporters and investors expand their international business. EDC’s knowledge and partnerships are used by 7,000 Canadian companies and their global customers in up to 200 markets worldwide each year. EDC is financially self-sustaining, is a recognized leader in financial reporting, economic analysis and has been named one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers for six consecutive years. EDC is committed to conducting its business in a socially responsible manner.
