Report OverviewThe 32-page document, the first of its kind, outlines the outcomes of the Responsible Canadian Energy program, a CAPP initiative that replaced its previous Stewardship program. Designed "to measure [CAPP's] performance and encourage [its] members to find new approaches to reduce our environmental footprint, to ensure every worker returns home safely every day, and to continue to improve the ways in which we [CAPP] communicate and engage the public and other stakeholders" CAPP's homepage provides a summary of the program's vision and principles.
Following an introduction by CAPP's president, David Collyer, the report begins with a section, "Here's What We Said, and How We Are Doing" (between pages 2 and 3), that pairs the organization's guiding principles with the steps outlined in the report. Below are the principles identified by the report.
- Provide a safe and healthy workplace for our employees, contractors and for the communities in which we work, with a goal to do no harm;
- Conduct our activities in an environmentally responsible manner;
- Engage our stakeholders in open and responsive communications;
- Create opportunities for economic and social benefits in the communities in which we operate, at a local and national level; and
- Conduct our business activities with integrity, ensuring all people are treated with dignity, fairness and respect
