We care about climate change. And as an energy infrastructure company, we understand our role in the energy system, including our own greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs). We are working hard to manage emissions and reduce the carbon intensity of our operations in ways that meet, or often exceed, what is required.
Examples of our commitment to managing emissions:
"As a leading energy infrastructure company, the crux of our challenge in this changing energy landscape is to safely deliver the energy the world needs in an economically, environmentally and socially responsible manner. "
President and Chief Executive Officer
Our commitment to transition to a more balanced energy future extends to our business development decisions.
We are actively participating in supporting the energy shift from coal-fired generation to natural gas, nuclear and renewables. We have invested billions in emission-less energy sources, accounting for one-half of the power we produce.
We are also playing a key role in Ontario's successful elimination of coal-fired power generation through our 48.5 percent ownership of the Bruce Power nuclear facility. In 2015, we entered into an agreement with the Ontario Independent Electricity System Operator to extend the life of the facility to 2064. This agreement ensures reliable and affordable emission-less power for Ontario communities for decades to come.
Climate change is at the forefront of environmental interests at TransCanada.
