We manage our business in accordance with a rigorous code of conduct. We apply leading governance practices and principles across our supply chain.

Building strong communities nationwide
We mobilize ourselves and others to make a difference in Canadian communities. Bell makes a significant investment in the communities where our team members work and live. Bell contributed $16 million in community investment in 2011. That included the Bell Let’s Talk mental health initiative. With our $50 million five-year commitment, it is the largest program ever undertaken by a Canadian corporation in support of mental health, one of Canada’s most pressing health concerns.
Minimizing our environmental impact in everything we do
We are committed to creating a more sustainable future. Bell plays a leadership role in the communications industry by taking environmental protection into account in all aspects of its operations, including the deployment and maintenance of its networks and the efficient use of energy and resources in operations. Using energy efficiently both helps the environment and supports our strategic imperative to achieve a competitive cost structure. 1,065,304 mobile phones diverted from landfill since 2003. In 2011, we took great care to reduce our environmental footprint, offer innovative energy-saving solutions to fight climate change and demonstrate stewardship in the products and services we provide.
