Back to Listing

Ottawa, Ontario, June 30, 2021The Royal Canadian Mint was once again named one of the Best 50 Corporate Citizens in Canada by sustainable business magazine Corporate Knights. The Mint primarily achieved this ranking, the 6th best within the mining category, for its top scores in mechanisms linking senior executive pay to sustainability targets, clean revenue from recycled coins, as well as its strong performance in clean investment.

“Being ranked by Corporate Knights as one Canada's Top 50 Best Corporate Citizens is an important validation of the Mint's efforts to build sustainability and corporate social responsibility into everything we do,'” said Marie Lemay, President and CEO of the Royal Canadian Mint. “As CSR is now integrated in every plan flowing from our One Mint strategy, we will continue to build on this recognition to make sure that the Mint's future is not only successful, but socially and environmentally responsible as well.”

The Mint is committed to operating in an environmentally responsible and sustainable manner, as well as championing diversity and inclusion. It does so in a variety of ways:

  • Actively supporting the circular economy, which minimizes waste and makes the most of existing resources, as well as promoting clean revenue through its alloy recovery and recycling programs;
  • Maintaining low levels of water consumption, waste production and harmful emissions;
  • Making significant capital investments in clean technologies; and
  • Championing diversity and inclusion throughout its organization.

Corporate Knights is a Toronto‑based media and research company that produces rankings and financial product ratings based on corporate sustainability performance. Its annual corporate citizenship recognition program is a respected benchmark for corporate sustainability leadership in Canada.

The Best 50 Corporate Citizens in Canada ranking is based on 23 indicators that cover aspects such as environmental performance, innovation capacity, safety performance, and compensation and benefits. The Mint was evaluated against 271 other Canadian corporations.
