This culture of environmental leadership has led to EPCOR being recognized as: one of Canada’s Best 50 Corporate Citizens, an EnviroVista champion-level operator in Alberta, one of America’s Utilities of the Future Today, and a Canada’s Clean50 award winner for environmental sustainability.
EPCOR’s leadership is underpinned by its Health, Safety and Environment Policy, which commits the company to “preventing pollution and reducing our environmental impacts, including those contributing to climate change and affecting the ecosystems in which we operate.”
This commitment is backed by disciplined day-to-day operations, with most of EPCOR’s Canadian operations holding third-party ISO 14001:2015 certification for their environmental management systems. Through its Enterprise Risk Management program, the company identifies, manages and monitors business risks that could significantly impact day-to-day operations or its ability to achieve its long-term plans.
