By 2000, companies were coming under unprecedented pressure to be transparent about their successes and shortcomings in the pursuit of sustainability. In response, Alcan Inc. became a Canadian leader in adopting rigorous sustainability reporting practices, particularly at its B.C. operations.
PDI was part of the team that built a comprehensive reporting framework from the ground up for this operation (now owned by Rio Tinto Alcan). And PDI continued to design the annual report for more than a decade, placing it at the forefront of the now well-established governance and communications discipline of sustainability-related disclosure.
