Responsible Development
delivering. responding . improving. Suncor’s vision is to be trusted stewards of valuable natural resources.

Suncor is focused on delivering triple-bottom-line sustainability. This means managing our operations and growth plans in a way that enhances social and economic benefits, while striving to minimize the environmental impact associated with development.

  • Suncor is tackling both global environmental issues such as greenhouse gas emissions and regional issues such as land use, reclamation, water use and air quality. 
  • Our approach is to harness new technology and innovative thinking to improve environmental performance and reduce our impact on air, land and water. 
  • We're also investing in renewable energy – seven operating wind power projects and Canada's largest ethanol plant. 
  • We help build healthy communities. Over the past 15 years, Suncor Energy and the Suncor Energy Foundation have contributed more than $190 million to charitable and non-profit organizations in Canada and internationally. 
  • We work with industry, governments and community groups to earn and maintain the trust of residents in communities where we operate.
