The Suncor Energy Foundation (SEF), embodies our purpose of caring for each other and the Earth by connecting business and community strengths to make a positive difference in society. Through partnerships and relationships with those who are courageously seeking solutions, we help spark change and propel progress for generations ahead.
We take a long-term view and believe we have the opportunity – and responsibility – to help build a better future. Since Suncor began operations in the oil sands over 50 years ago, this commitment has been demonstrated in our work with communities across our operations, through the efforts of our employees, and with the creation of SEF in 1998.
We believe in partnering and building relationships for the long term to bring a brighter world to life. These relationships need to be across multiple sectors as no one type of organization can solve the interconnected, complex challenges we’re facing in the world today. That’s why we aim to foster mutual benefit and co-create solutions.
- Connect people across sectors and systems while working to increase equity and belonging.
- Share power and co-create sustainable solutions to complex challenges. To do so, we will lean into courageous conversations and be open to changing ourselves.
- Amplify community-led and community-informed efforts, including the efforts of Suncor employees.
- Support people and communities to adapt and evolve toward more regenerative approaches.
