We are focused on preventing spills and, if a spill does occur, ensuring a rapid, comprehensive response.
In pursuit of our goal of zero spills to land and water, we continually develop and improve risk management, operations integrity, spill prevention processes and containment capabilities by:
- Increasing spill awareness through training
- Learning from past incidents
- Upgrading key equipment
- Carrying out inspections and surveillance programs
See our oil and chemical spills data in the most recent Sustainability Report.
Progressive reclamationWe are actively salvaging, segregating and storing soil, and collecting and banking native seeds at our oil sands operations so that these valuable reclamation materials are readily available in the future.
Land use and biodiversityWe operate in a variety of ecosystems - some with sensitive characteristics. Our Upstream operations in particular can affect different wildlife areas, including foothills, prairie ecosystems and northern peatland areas.
