Best 50’s Pioneering History

In 2002, Toby Heaps, Corporate Knights’ co-founder and CEO, made a bold claim: in a world where profit-driven corporations were often seen as the antithesis to the common good, Heaps described how the modern corporation could act as an “incubator for human progress and wealth creation.” The belief that companies could be guided by purpose, equity, integrity and sustainability inspired Corporate Knights to embark on a data-driven search for Canada’s best corporate citizens. This commitment to measure companies on what matters most for people and the planet has now spanned over two decades.
