Corporate Social Responsibility Strategy

Leading Government

On June 22, 2017, Regional Council adopted the Region of Peel's Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Strategy and embarked on a CSR journey to address business operations. The long-term outcome of the CSR Strategy is to ensure that the Region's operating practices achieve social, economic and environmental benefits for the community. Two years after strategy implementation, numerous initiatives are in place or under development. Highlights of achievements are shown in the diagram below.
