Corporate Social Responsibility

Our CSR Journey

We believe operating an organization sustainably is critical to delivering services and solutions that strengthen our local and global communities. Our focus continues to be on providing clients and stakeholders with practical services and solutions that produce positive economic, social and environmental impacts. 

From our growing list of sustainable services to cheering on our employees in community activities, we are committed to conducting business in a responsible manner, and to helping other companies, organizations and communities do the same.

SRC acknowledges that the land on which we gather and work in Saskatoon is Treaty 6 Territory and the Homeland of the Métis; in Regina on Treaty 4 Territory and the Homeland of the Métis; and in northern Saskatchewan on Treaty 8 Territory and the Homeland of the Métis.

Our CSR journey started when we become a company in 1947, with the objective of strengthening Saskatchewan's economy through research and development. Through a diverse range of initiatives over the years, CSR has become embedded in our corporate strategy and continues to become more ingrained in our organizational culture.
