As an energy infrastructure company, we recognize our role in the larger energy system, including the ongoing management of our own GHGs. We are committed to managing our GHG emissions, focusing on our GHG intensity and continuing to integrate climate considerations into our overall business strategy.
Examples of our commitment to managing emissions:
President and Chief Executive Officer
Our commitment to reducing emissions and improving efficiency isn’t new. Far from it: for over half a century we have tested promising new technologies to minimize emissions and fuel consumption of our pipeline stations.
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.
