Building on our leadership in sustainability, Alectra Utilities (formerly Horizon Utilities) is the first Canadian local distribution company (LDC) to adopt ISO 26000, the International Organization for Standardization's guideline on social responsibility.
ISO 26000 offers an overview on socially responsible corporate behaviour and possible actions. Unlike other ISO standards that are certifiable, ISO 26000 provides guidelines only. Alectra Utilities voluntarily adopted that direction, further demonstrating our commitment to sustainable development. We engaged a third party – the CIAL Group – to review our practices and processes to ensure we are following the roadmap outlined through this international standard.
