TELUS is leading globally in sustainability and social capitalism

Nov 26, 2020

TELUS’ global leadership in social capitalism and sustainability has been recognized, yet again, with rankings on two renowned global indices: the Wall Street Journal’s Top 100 Sustainably Managed Companies as 29th in the world overall and 15th in Social Capital and, once again, on the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index for the fifth consecutive year and on the North American Index for the 20th year in a row. TELUS is the only North American telecommunications company and one of only five Canadian companies recognized on this World Index. These accolades recognize TELUS’ global leadership in corporate citizenship and philanthropy, innovation management, and environmental and social reporting.
