The Way We Work
At Chevron Canada, we place a high value on protecting the environment.
We believe that preserving a clean, safe, healthy environment can go hand in hand with meeting the world's energy needs. We are continually evaluating and striving to improve our processes to reduce pollution and waste, conserve energy and natural resources, and reduce the potential for environmental impacts of our activities and operations.
From our everyday actions to major capital investments, we are dedicated to making the right decisions for the environment. We use our Operational Excellence Management System to identify and manage risks and to improve reliability and safety in all our operations. At our existing operations at Kitimat and our Kaybob Duvernay project area in west-central Alberta, we are systematically implementing environmental performance standards to reduce emissions and discharges, to manage wastes and to conserve natural resources.
Across our business, we are also taking steps to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions. Our Seven Principles for Addressing Climate Change reflect a balanced approach to addressing climate change through both short and long-term measures. More on Chevron's approach to addressing the issue of climate can be found in Additional Information on Chevron's Greenhouse Gas Management Activities.
Chevron is privileged to be able to attract some of the best environmental advisors and subject matter experts to work with us in reducing our impact and to manage our environmental programs. These programs cover the full range of environmental issues including climate change adaptation, flora and fauna monitoring and protection, and waste reduction technology selection.
We are committed to ensuring all our projects are developed in an environmentally responsible manner.
Through Chevron’s sponsorship of the Conservation Corps in Newfoundland and Labrador, we support interns who work throughout the province to build environmentally sustainable communities with the help of educational programming.
