About this report

Our approach and scope

This is CAE’s first Activity Report. It consolidates information on our company strategy, performance and corporate social responsibility (CSR) into one document. It includes all the information previously found in our CSR Report and the editorial pages of our Annual Report.

Integrating our reporting in this way enables us to provide stakeholders with a single source of information in key areas. It also signals that CSR is inseparable from our core business strategy and activities. As you will read in this report, our training solutions generate benefits across the three central elements of sustainability: economic, environmental and social.

This report covers our global operations and, unless otherwise stated, presents quantitative and qualitative information for fiscal year 2016 (ended March 31, 2016). A PDF of this report can be downloaded here.

Reporting standards

This report is aligned with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G4 Sustainability Reporting Guidelines. An independent institution, the GRI provides a standard framework for sustainability reporting across companies and industries. You will find an index of our alignment to the GRI G4 core reporting requirements and references to other relevant information sources here.

All figures in this report are in Canadian dollars.
