Sustainable Electricity Leader
In 2014, AltaLink was honoured to be the first electricity transmission company, and only the second electricity company in Canada to receive Electricity Canada’s Sustainable Electricity LeaderTM designation.
The designation is eligible for renewal every five years. In 2019, AltaLink became the first Canadian utility to be re-designated, reflecting our ongoing commitment to meeting the needs of our customers, communities and employees through sustainable business practices.
The designation was developed 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 of their observance to the standard.
