Air and Climate

An upgrade at Syncrude. There is a man walking on the grate beside the tower.
As an industry, we strive to understand the current and potential impacts our work may have on the air.

Canada's oil and natural gas industry works to reduce air emissions associated with our development activities through project design, operational excellence, innovation and technology.

Air management in Canada is under the shared jurisdiction of the provincial and federal governments. The focus for air management is centered on air emissions (pollutants and greenhouse gases) and odour.

The state of air is an important factor in the quality of life in Canadian cities. Although Canada's air quality is better than in many other comparable countries, it is important to take steps now to ensure that air quality is protected into the future.
