CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Dec. 4, 2014) - Suncor Energy today announced it received two awards for excellence in corporate reporting from the Chartered Professional Accountants of Canada (CPA Canada) at the Corporate Reporting Awards held in Toronto last night.
Suncor has received the Award of Excellence in Sustainability Reporting for its 2014 Report on Sustainability. This is the sixth consecutive year that the company has been honoured with this award. Suncor also received the Award of Excellence in the Oil and Gas and Forestry Products Sector for Corporate Reporting, making this the third time the company has been recognized in this category.
"Our Report on Sustainability addresses and reports on the challenges we face in our industry," said Arlene Strom, vice president, sustainability and communications, Suncor. "Many people throughout Suncor are involved in gathering and validating information for both the Report on Sustainability and our Annual Report. Their meticulous attention to detail and eye to continuous improvement and excellence are reflected in the finished products. We're honoured to receive these prestigious awards."
