EDMONTON, Alberta, July 05, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TSX, NYSE:STN

Stantec, a global leader in sustainable design and engineering, continues to shine in environmental, social, and governance (ESG) indicators, earning recognition by Corporate Knights as one of Canada’s Best 50 Corporate Citizens of 2022. This represents the 13th time Stantec has been named on the Best 50 Corporate Citizens list.

“Our continued placement as one of Canada’s Best 50 Corporate Citizens is affirmation that our long-standing commitment to advancing ESG is making a real impact towards a more sustainable future,” said Gord Johnston, President and CEO. “Advancing sustainability is simply the right thing to do and our teams are making a difference both within our company and with our clients and their projects here in Canada and across the globe.”

Earlier this year, Stantec was ranked among the top 1 percent in the world on sustainable performance and number one in its peer group in the Corporate Knights Global 100 most sustainable companies rankings, which similarly recognizes sustainable business practices based on ESG indicators.

Among the firm’s recent key ESG achievements are:

  • Revenue Alignment with UN SDGs – The firm recently announced that 53% of its gross revenue is aligned with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), up from 49% in 2020 and 45% in 2019.

  • Innovating in Sustainability-Driven Finance – Stantec amended and extended its syndicated senior credit facility under a Sustainability-Linked Loan, becoming the first company globally to link its financing strategy to its Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index score. Stantec also became the first company in Canada to commit to direct savings back into communities to further climate action and social justice.

  • Globally Recognized Leadership – The Company’s ESG progress has also been recognized by various leading independent organizations. Stantec was named by Forbes as one of the World’s Top Female-Friendly companies and America’s Best Employers for Diversity. For multiple years, the firm has been listed on the Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index and American Indian Science and Engineer Society Top 50 workplaces for Indigenous STEM professionals.
