At AltaLink, sustainability is at the heart of our business strategy. Every decision and plan considers environmental, social and economic impacts now and for the future.

Our framework includes our core business practices and values, and builds on existing programs, policies and procedures, as well as industry best practices in corporate sustainability.

Four key principles guide AltaLink's corporate sustainability:

  1. We manage our business to avoid or minimize environmental impacts; we seek opportunities to reclaim and restore where impacts are unavoidable; and we maintain a responsible approach to resource consumption.
  2. We provide a safe, healthy work environment and support and respect a diverse workplace.
  3. We communicate and consult with stakeholders, including Aboriginal Peoples, landowners and our customers in a transparent, timely and respectful manner.
  4. We deliver and use electricity in a safe, reliable and cost-effective manner to meet current and future needs.

Sustainable Electricity Designation

SEA Logo

On January 10, 2014, AltaLink was honoured to be the first electricity transmission company and only the second electricity company in Canada to receive the Canadian Electricity Association’s (CEA) Sustainable Electricity Company.

On November 13, 2019, the CEA announced that AltaLink became the first Canadian utility to be re-designated as a Sustainability Electricity Company, reflecting our ongoing commitment to meeting the needs of our customers, communities and employees through sustainable business practices.

The designation was developed by the CEA for utility companies across Canada and requires utilities to commit to standards for environmental and social responsibility. In addition to the standards, companies must also pass a third-party external verification to ensure adherence to the standard.

AltaLink’s designation as a Sustainable Electricity CompanyTM is a reflection of our commitment to meeting the needs of our stakeholders, communities and employees through sustainable business practices.
