Canada's Oil Sands | Part 4: Environment and the Facts

The future of Canada’s oil sands industry is changing – and we are excited about it. Like the entrepreneurs who established our industry and helped fuel our world over the past 100 years, we share Canadian values and have built our industry focused on solutions and continuous improvement.

We are going to be using oil for a long time to come – both in Canada and around the world. Canada has a tremendous resource base combined with a stable political environment and skilled people that make it the ideal place to develop our natural resources responsibly.

We know we have an impact on the planet. Just as we are committed to growing our businesses, we are equally committed to improving our environmental performance. We collaborate on our biggest environmental challenges, and develop technologies that lessen our impact on air, land and water, and provide benefits for our country.

We know that our innovation and technological advances will help Canada achieve its global environmental commitments and move towards a cleaner energy future. We know it, because we are working on tomorrow’s energy, today.

So, when it comes to helping the globe meet the need for increasing demands for energy – all forms of energy – we believe the world needs more Canada.
