Sketched undeline

We believe that a sustainable energy future means creating a low-carbon transition that is just and equitable for everyone, no matter their background or circumstances. We believe our mutual success is anchored in relationships based on trust and respect, and we work hard to nurture them, encompassing inclusion and diversity, psychological safety and mental health into our conversations. We recognize the significance of, and need for, true reconciliation with Indigenous peoples. It’s only through collaboration and open communication that we can effectively navigate the challenges we each face and advance the positive social change we desire.
