A message from Bruce March, Imperial Oil’s chairman, president & chief executive officer:
At Imperial, we believe it is possible to have a clean environment, reliable and affordable energy and a strong economy. We work toward this goal each day by integrating environmental protection, economic growth and social advancement into all aspects of our business planning.
As a company, we are committed to finding innovative and integrated solutions to delivering environmentally responsible energy. Through our relentless dedication to research, we are driving the development of technologies and practices to continually reduce our environmental footprint.
We are proud of our track record of continuously improving our environmental performance, but acknowledge that there is more work to do. Our commitment to developing Canada’s resources responsibly demands that we must never relent in our efforts to reduce the impact of our operations.
Canadians do not have to choose between economic well-being and a clean environment. It's not an either-or proposition. Both a healthy environment and a strong economy are important, and all of us should expect nothing less.
More information about our responsible development commitments and initiatives can be found throughout the community & society section of this website. You can also learn more about our work in the oil sands.
I also encourage you to read our recent Corporate Citizenship Report which describes our performance in 2009 and early 2010 across a full range of environmental, economic and social issues.
Should you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us for more information.
