Environment

As part of our commitment to being an environmentally responsible citizen, Keyera supports initiatives that care of and protect the environment, as well as those that promote environmental education and awareness. These initiatives take many forms, including investments in community environmental initiatives and participation in local activities.

Keyera recently signed a partnership with Ducks Unlimited Canada, to develop the Sustainable Wetlands Centre at Evergreen Park in Grande Prairie, Alberta. The Centre is a site where diverse stakeholder groups can demonstrate and learn about innovative technologies and practices that reduce environmental disturbance, build trust and improve profits.

Keyera supports environmental education programs through two unique partnerships with The Calgary Zoo and Arts Commons. We believe that educating students about the world around them will encourage curiosity about the world, and help to foster an appreciation for our environment and conservation practices.

Through a three-year commitment with Arts Commons, Keyera helps to bring some of National Geographic’s best and brightest to speak to Calgary students through the National Geographic Live! speaker series. Our support helps students, who would not otherwise be able to afford a ticket, the ability to attend matinee performances and learn from experienced explorers, photographers, filmmakers and scientists who share their personal stories of conservation, exploration and adventure.

Keyera also promotes conservation education through a partnership program with The Calgary Zoo, where Calgary students can receive secondary school biology credits for Population and Community Dynamics by attending on-site courses to learn about conservation, genetics and population management.
