Community Investment

Community Investment

We believe everyone in our communities should benefit from our presence.

At Gibson Energy, community investment is a fundamental part of our corporate culture. We believe that the areas where we live and operate should share the benefits of our success. We take pride in knowing that our community contributions serve local needs, harness our employees’ interests and align with our business goals. We are committed to being a preferred partner in both corporate and community circles by supporting efforts that reflect our company’s values and by aligning our philanthropic efforts with our overall corporate strategy.

Gibson Energy’s Community Investment Program offers an important avenue for supporting the communities where we operate. We believe, if done well, community investment can help establish mutually beneficial relationships between Gibson Energy and local communities and contribute toward the region’s long-term sustainability. The focus areas of our Community Investment Program are safety, environment and community.

Safety

Our commitment to safety is ingrained in Gibson Energy’s culture. In every aspect of our business, we are dedicated to the health and safety of our people, the protection and sustainability of communities, and the stewardship of the environment. We are proud of our safety record, but always strive for continuous improvement and operational excellence. We have a comprehensive Emergency Management Program, which applies across all our business activities and assets. Our storage tanks and operating facilities are monitored 24 hours a day to ensure our operations are running safely and efficiently.

Environment

Environmental stewardship is a top priority at Gibson Energy. To us, this means taking care of the natural environment while we work by following through on our commitments to the land, air, water and wildlife that surround our operations and the communities. We work with employees, industry partners, Indigenous communities, regulatory agencies and other stakeholder groups to understand environmental concerns and how to best address them. We are committed to protecting and conserving natural habitats and strive to be leaders in environmental responsibility.

Community

Gibson Energy employees and their families live, work and play in the communities where we operate and the long-term wellbeing of these communities is important to us. We believe that our neighbours should share in the benefits of our success. One of the ways we do this is through our Community Investment Program. We focus our community investment initiatives where we can make a positive, measurable impact. We take pride in knowing that our donations serve community needs, support our employees’ interests and align with our business goals.
