Have you ever wondered what Suncor is up to in the communities we operate in, other than work?
You’d be surprised to know – it’s a lot! From volunteering to sponsorship to open houses, it’s important that we interact with our communities not just in our interests, but also participate in things that are of importance to them.
"That means actively contributing and being part of building stronger communities," says Rebecca Sullivan, GM stakeholder and Aboriginal relations.
"These communities want us to be involved. I’ll never forget what I heard from one community member this year: he said, ‘Suncor needs to get out of the boardroom and into a pair of moccasins.’ That says it all!"
This part-of-the-community experience is exactly what we highlight in our new series of stakeholder e-newsletters, called Suncor Connections. We've opted for a sustainable, social-media friendly, interactive approach to ensure we are living up to our commitments and letting communities know what we are doing and contributing.
"We won’t operate for long if we do not have support from our local communities. It’s part of the way we must do business," adds Rebecca.
Connecting with communities
Maintaining trusted and strong relationships with all our community stakeholders means not only are we involved, but the activities we participate in are different from one region of the country to the next.
