Thank you for visiting Bombardier’s 2013 Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) online report. On this website, you will find information on our CSR efforts – both the progress we’ve made this year and the challenges we’ve experienced. We are proud of the work we have done – and it is a credit to our employees and our CSR Committee. But there is still much we want to do. To focus our efforts, this past year we set ten long-term priorities that will guide our approach over the next several years.
In addition to our 2013 CSR online report, this year we have published an Activity Report – the first step in the evolution of our external corporate reporting. This Activity Report provides a more comprehensive account of our business, showing how we create both financial and societal value in the short- and long-term. We believe, given how interconnected our business strategy is with societal concerns, that this type of communication is necessary to understand the bigger picture of how we operate and how we make decisions for the future.
We want our reporting to be part of a dialogue with our stakeholders. We welcome your feedback. Please share your thoughts so we may continue to improve how we conduct our business, how we serve our customers and how we serve society.
Senior Vice President, General Counsel and Corporate Secretary, CSR Committee Chairman
