recognizes and values the importance of responsible environmental stewardship.
Environmental protection is an integral
part of our business and throughout the lifecycle of each of our assets. We are
committed to continuous improvement and invest in our infrastructure to increase
energy and natural resource efficiency, reduce emissions, and enhance
environmental performance. These improvements reflect common sense, good
science, improved practices and our continued commitment to maintain
The Keyera Health, Safety and Environment Policy establishes
environmental protection, mitigation and restoration as an integral part of our
business. This commitment is to be embraced by everyone at our worksites, including contractors and suppliers, and
will not be compromised. A Competency Management and Development System (CMDS) provides
training to employees that require awareness of environmental issues,
obligations and opportunities.
Keyera continues to advance the development and sustainment
of an Operational Excellence Management System (OEMS) to manage our
environmental responsibilities. A description of this program and the
committees responsible for overseeing environmental risks and opportunities can
be found within our Environmental Responsibilities summary.
Addressing environmental issues is a
shared responsibility and we work with government, industry, communities and
public interest stakeholders to address the current challenges while preparing
for evolving regulatory requirements. We also support community initiatives
that protect the environment or promote environmental education through our
community investments program.
As transparency becomes increasingly
important to shareholders and other stakeholders, Keyera strives to be open and
forthright in communications and environment reporting. Beyond regulatory
reporting obligations, key environmental performance metrics are shared through
our ESG Performance Summary. Environmental
risk information is detailed in the Operational Risks section of Keyera’s Annual Information Form.
Since 2010, Keyera has been reporting
our Climate Change Disclosure to CDP, an
organization that examines how companies integrate climate change into business
strategy, governance, management and operations. CDP is an important benchmark
and provides a forum for comparing our performance to that of our industry peers
and other sectors.
