Toronto Hydro 2012 CR Report

INTRODUCTION OUR SERVICES OUR WORKFORCE OUR ENVIRONMENTal INITIATIVES OUR COMMUNITY OUTREACH OUR ECONOMIC PERFORMANCE OUR GOVERNANCE, COMPLIANCE AND BUSINESS CONDUCT Sixty-four Toronto Hydro Employees Helped with Restoration Efforts in the United States While Sandy wreaked havoc in Toronto, the damage it caused in the United States was significantly worse. Hundreds of thousands of people went without power for days. Toronto Hydro was proud to send 64 of our electrical trades staff and support personnel to assist our southern neighbours. They were greeted with warm welcomes and heartfelt thanks, and spent 13 days working to restore power in the New York City area. For their efforts, our employees were formally recognized by the City of Toronto. WeatherWise Partnership Climate change and adaptation is an important focus at the City of Toronto and Toronto Hydro is pleased to be a member of the WeatherWise Partnership. Weather conditions in Ontario are becoming increasingly unpredictable, and this group brings together more than 50 government, private, and not-for-profit organizations to discuss risks and develop plans to address them. Assembled by the City of Toronto and CivicAction, the group has identified the electricity grid as its first priority study area.
