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 We surveyed employees in 2012, and 75 per cent of respondents said they felt it was very important to work for a company that supports involvement in the community. Celebrating Men’s Health with Movember In 2012, Toronto Hydro employees showed their support for prostate cancer and men’s mental health by participating in the popular moustache campaign, Movember. More than 168 employees, friends and family members registered to raise funds for this important cause. Sixteen teams of men and women were formed across the organization. While the actual growing of moustaches was left to the men, women participated with equal zest. With individual fundraising efforts and the Brighter Days® Matching Program, we collectively raised more than $23,000 for Movember Canada. The Community Involvement team also launched a social media contest to raise awareness about Movember. Twelve Toronto Hydro vehicles were outfitted with giant moustaches and our Twitter followers were asked to spot the moustache and tweet a picture for a chance to win a prize. Supporting Breast Cancer Research The fight against breast cancer is a cause close to many hearts and it certainly resonates among Toronto Hydro employees. A pproximately 80 employees, friends and families participated in the 2012 Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the C ure. Participants raised approximately $12,000 as a team and through Toronto Hydro’s matching program, the Corporation donated $4,895. In total, we donated approximately $17,000 to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, surpassing our 2011 contribution by 40 per cent. VIDEO: CIBC Run for the Cure. This is Aida’s story. To raise awareness about the cause and thank employees for their participation, Toronto Hydro produced three videos, two of which documented the personal stories of employees whose lives have been touched by breast cancer.
