Sustainability Q and A
It’s time to have a Chief Sustainability Officer at the executive level – in part, because we’ve matured through a 20-year journey to actually build this capability deeply into our culture. It’s about developing a strategy and capability right across the company.
Chief Sustainability Officer
Suncor’s sustainability goals reflect our focused efforts on strengthening relationships with Aboriginal Peoples in Canada, and reducing our greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) intensity.
About our report and sustainability priorities
Suncor has reported our sustainability progress and performance for over two decades and this 2018 Report on Sustainability continues our approach to transparency.
We reviewed the most relevant sustainability priorities through an in depth materiality assessment. In the context used for this report, materiality reflects the relative significance of sustainability priorities and their impacts (both positive and negative) both to our business, and to stakeholders and Aboriginal communities affected by our business.
The trust and support of stakeholders and Aboriginal communities are very important to Suncor and foundational to successful energy development.
In today’s polarized world, constructive and solutions-focused conversations about climate change and our shared energy future are more essential than ever.
Water is a shared and precious resource. Suncor’s integrated water management approach balances optimizing our water use practices with technological innovation to sustainably manage water.
Suncor is committed to incident prevention and learning and continues to raise the bar to improve process safety and reliability performance.
