Taking Responsibility

About This Report

We are pleased to present EDC’s 11th annual Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) report. Our 2015 report is being released later than usual as we took time to competitively select and contract an external supplier to help improve our reporting.

Reporting Scope and Boundary

This report covers our business activities for the 2015 calendar year at all EDC operations across Canada and around the world with two exceptions:

  • Operational footprint data pertains to our Ottawa head office only, where more than 90 per cent of EDC’s physical operations are concentrated, as measured by square footage

  • Reporting to the Government of Canada on EDC’s green bond is provided according to the government’s fiscal year, April 1st to March 31st
