Climate change is one of the most often mentioned environmental issues associated with the oil and gas industry. Greenhouse gas emissions including CO2 are produced when developing petroleum resources.
Our growing industry affects more and more Canadians, and they expect us to act responsibly. As an industry, we are committed to meeting those expectations. This is the foundation for CAPP’s environment, health and safety and social responsibility initiative called Responsible Canadian Energy.
Canadian oil and gas workers face some of the harshest and most challenging work environments on the planet. That’s why the health and safety of our employees is of the utmost importance to the industry.
Canada's oil sands industry will provide a secure source of energy, reduce its impact on the environment and provide economic benefits to society while developing this globally significant resource.
The Canadian oil and gas industry fully recognizes that it must continue to do its part in addressing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and advocates several key principles to guide the development of Canadian climate policy.
The Responsible Canadian Energy™ Program represents a collective commitment by CAPP’s member companies to continuously improve, measure and report performance in the areas of people, air, water and land, and engage collaboratively with the communities in which industry works.
