Our approach to sustainability

Stakeholders are critical to our success. Through our relationships, we learn what matters most to those around us. Protecting the environment, delivering shared value, and operating our business responsibly are core to our strategy.

We recently completed a formal ESG materiality assessment to gain alignment on key ESG issues. A comprehensive group of internal and external stakeholders and Indigenous communities identified six focus areas.  Going forward, our efforts will be aligned to these areas to enhance our performance and disclosure.
