Biodiversity

Syncrude’s commitment to environmental stewardship encompasses specific programs aimed at ensuring our operations do not have a long-term, permanent impact on local ecosystems and, upon project completion, to re-establish a diversity of wildlife and fish habitats similar to those that existed prior to disturbance of the area.

Syncrude operations must adhere to environmental regulations, including the Alberta Environmental Protection and Enhancement Act, and Alberta Wildlife Act. As well, every 10 years, Syncrude must obtain operating approval by submitting a detailed plan outlining how we will steward to government requirements regarding environmental protection, reclamation and mine closure. Compliance reporting and amendments are submitted midway through the reporting period.
