Gibson Energy Inc. is pleased to announce another successful year of industry-leading safety performance, achieving top quartile safety performance among North American peers for the second consecutive year. In 2022, the Company also maintained and enhanced its position as an industry sustainability leader, as identified by globally recognized ESG rating agencies, due to its continued environmental, social and governance (“ESG”) achievements. Gibson will continue to build off its solid foundation by identifying opportunities in 2023 and beyond, to ambitiously advance its sustainability journey and further leverage its world-class asset base to support global energy transition.
“In order to deliver strong and sustainable outcomes across our business, it starts with our uncompromising goal that all of our employees and contractors get home safely at the end of their day,” said Steve Spaulding, President and Chief Executive Officer. “We are proud of our continued industry-leading safety performance and more broadly, another year of exceptional performance against our ESG goals. It is our commitment to play an integral role in the Canadian energy value chain and demonstrate our leadership in the midstream energy space.”
Gibson’s sustainability strategy is underpinned by innovative, purpose-driven initiatives that generate long-term value for our key stakeholders including investors, employees, customers, communities, Indigenous rightsholders, governments and suppliers.
“We intend to lead by example as the world transitions to a more sustainable future,” said Sean Wilson, Senior Vice President, Chief Administrative and Sustainability Officer. “Being recognized by key ESG rating agencies as an industry leader only further motivates our dedicated teams. Looking ahead, Gibson will continue to look for opportunities to improve our operations, including further emissions reduction, enhancing our efforts to protect biodiversity and advancing our Indigenous Relations plans.”
