BCE publishes a corporate responsibility report annually. This report marks the 27th year of annual reporting on the environmental, social, and governance (ESG) topics that are most significant to Bell’s stakeholders and to its business. This report contains an overview of Bell’s sustainability strategy, including a summary of progress towards achieving its short-, medium-, and longer-term goals in the areas of team members, customers, environment, and society. This document, together with the information and documents available in the Responsibility section of BCE’s website, serves as a comprehensive view of Bell’s ESG performance and programs.
This report has been prepared in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards-Core option, with the addition of select Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) indicators and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). As a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) since 2006, Bell is expected to report its progress on human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption. This report describes actions they have taken to implement the UNGC guidelines and principles, and serves as Bell’s Communication on Progress (COP). Bell also supports the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosure’s (TCFD) recommendations, as detailed here.
