As a progressive, energy-focused infrastructure development company, responsible development is core to our commitments and how we conduct our business. These commitments are informed by the respect for our people and the communities in which we work and our shared interest in developing economically, socially and environmentally responsible projects.
At Pacific Traverse Energy, the health, safety and well-being of our people and the communities in which we work is paramount. We are committed to operating safely and providing everyone who works in the organization a safe and healthy workplace. We believe everyone who works for and with PTE has the right to return home to their families safe and healthy each and every day.
We provide a safe and healthy work environment for all employees, contractors and other stakeholders we work with, and will expect a reciprocal commitment to safety and safe work practices.
Managing for Safety
We manage safety in a responsible and conscientious manner as it is a core competency to drive the success of our business.
We integrate health and safety practices into our company’s values, culture, overall business planning, management, and operational procedures.
We strive to be an industry leader in accident and injury prevention with a specific focus on continuous improvement of health and safety.
All business activities are conducted through the embodiment of our commitment to environmental, social, cultural, and economical sustainability. We value collaboration with Indigenous peoples and engagement with local communities to deliver on this commitment on all of our projects.
We engage with First Nations, government, landowners, community groups, and key stakeholders.
We listen to all voices and, where possible, ensure our projects reflect the input we hear and the values upon which that input is based.
We seek partnerships in developing our projects in a way that respects the values and needs of the local communities where we work, and we provide local family-supporting jobs.
We are committed to protecting the environment, managing resources responsibly and minimizing emissions through company activities. We proactively adapt our projects to fit the environments in which we work. We work with our customers, suppliers and industry associations to adopt similar environmental and responsible resource use commitments throughout the energy value chain.
We undertake early studies to understand existing environmental conditions and endeavour to design our projects to avoid or alternatively, minimize potential environmental effects.
Wherever possible, we use clean and renewable sources of energy to power our operations. Using best-in-class technologies we strive to minimize the use and consumption of water, energy, and other natural resources. Where resources and consumables are used, we will handle, capture, treat and recycle these products where practical, while not compromising the safety and integrity of our operations.
We work with our customers and suppliers to encourage responsible resource use through their own operations and the services they provide to PTE. We support innovation, development of new products and the adoption of latest technologies that encourage responsible resource use.
