The CBSR Foundation

Let’s co-create a net-zero and socially just future

The CBSR Foundation is a registered charity that aims to fundamentally change the way we do business – for the better. It is where collaborators from the corporate sector, all levels of government, academia, NGOs and others come together to drive system-level changes that support a net-zero, socially just future. 


These transformative projects and solutions could include reporting and governance requirements, re-shaping board representation, investing in mechanisms that enshrine accountability, or introducing new public policies. 


We co-create content, resources, and programming and also collaborate on research and engagement projects that embed sustainability into the DNA of businesses across Canada. 

Current Collaborations 


The CBSR Foundation is currently supporting a number of important projects, in collaboration with the following partners:

The Sustainable Procurement Fellowship, supported by HP Canada. Together and within their own organizations, the 40 inaugural fellows are championing sustainable procurement as a mechanism for addressing scope 3 emissions and advancing sustainability goals.
