Responsible Stewardship

Minimizing Impact

Protecting the environment and the sustainability of the communities where we work is an important commitment.

Using our pragmatic approach, we engage our stakeholders, including our people, customers, partners, suppliers, government and regulators as well as Indigenous communities, to determine the sustainability issues most relevant to our businesses and the communities where we operate. This includes meeting or exceeding all environmental requirements, laws and regulations affecting our facilities, operations and our people. It also means developing and implementing responsible air, water, soil and waste management controls for our operations.
