Sustainability

A strong commitment to sustainability is a hallmark of Suncor. While challenges remain, we’re encouraged by our progress and are committed to continuously improving our performance.

  • Suncor is planning to spend more than $1 billion to deploy new tailings technologies which have the potential to reduce our tailings reclamation time by decades.
  • We’ve made industry-leading investments in renewable energy, including investments in four wind projects and Canada’s largest ethanol plant. Work is currently underway to expand this biofuel facility to double its capacity. In total, we’ve targeted investment of $750 million in renewables by 2012.
  • Suncor has a strong history of investing in the communities where we operate.
  • We work with industry, governments and community groups to develop a coordinated, long-term approach to address infrastructure pressures on communities in northern Alberta.

To provide more detail on Suncor’s responsible development strategy, we produce reports on our performance. Suncor’s 2010 Report on Sustainability outlines Suncor’s performance in 2009 and provides a five-year performance trend where possible.
