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.

We’re fair and transparent in everything we do. We are committed to being ethical,and have policies in place to ensure we operate at the highest standard for our customers.
