For the first time, the pipeline industry as a whole has come together to inform Canadians about its collective performance.
The 2015 Pipeline Industry Performance Report shares the pipeline industry's recent performance and the actions we are taking to improve safety, lessen environmental impacts and achieve operational excellence.
Launched by the Canadian Energy Pipeline Association (CEPA) on November 3, this new report, Committed to Safety, Committed to Canadians, represents an opportunity to take the dialogue beyond individual pipeline projects, and show how the pipeline industry, including Alliance, through concrete, transparent actions like Integrity First®, is focused on continuous improvement and building strong relationships with Canadians.
"Through Integrity First®, our members have committed to apply industry-leading practices that go beyond regulation, as well as to publicly share measurable evidence of deliberate and intentional improvement," says Terrance Kutryk, Alliance Pipeline President and CEO, and Chair of CEPA's Board of Directors.
Our hope is that this report will enable Alliance and other pipeline companies to start a new conversation with Canadians – one around transparency, commitment and continuous improvement. Alliance is proud to be a part of this report, and help provide answers to the questions Canadians are asking.
What's in the report?
The report provides statistics in areas like safety, incidents and environmental protection, and also shares background and insight into what those statistics mean.
"Providing context and reinforcing the big picture of how our industry works creates a new level of awareness and familiarity for Canadians – this report is key in educating the public about what we do, how we do it, and how we are getting better," says Brenda Kenny, CEPA's CEO and president.
The performance report is a first for the pipeline industry and shows an unprecedented level of transparency that the industry hopes will help enhance public awareness and our industry's reputation.
