"At Cogeco, ESG is the framework that supports our sustainable business strategy, and it is therefore an integral component of our strategic discussions. We are cognizant of the important role that corporations must play in addressing the most pressing environmental, social, and economic challenges of our time and are committed to continuing to lead the way towards a better and more sustainable future for all," said Philippe Jetté, President and Chief Executive Officer, Cogeco.

Here are the sustainability highlights showcasing Cogeco's performance over the past year:

  • Cogeco has continued to make progress on its ambitious broadband network expansion programme aimed at bridging the digital divide between urban and less populated areas as part of its social impact initiatives. Additionally, the company has focused on key initiatives aimed at engaging its teams and promoting diversity and inclusion by establishing three new Employee Resource Groups.
