Our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Report covers the Bank’s economic, social and environmental impacts and performance in 2007 and is organized by stakeholder group – customers, employees and the community. Scotiabank supports the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and this report qualifies as G3 Application Level C.

In addition, we have made a concerted effort to report on our international activities – including workplace, customer, environmental and community programs – to better reflect the global scope of our organization. We hope to continue to increase the quantity and quality of international reporting in future reports.

During 2007, we also continued to expand and evolve this report and improve our website content, which complements our printed edition. By providing more comprehensive information in an online format, we can provide greater detail without increasing paper consumption and improve information accessibility for our stakeholders.

* Scotiabank’s 2007 Corporate Social Responsibility Report/Public Accountability Statement (PAS) is published in accordance with section 3 of Public Accountability Statements (Banks, Insurance Companies, Trust and Loan Companies) Regulations for the fiscal year November 1, 2006 to October 31, 2007.
