COSIA’s four Environmental Priority Areas (EPA) of Land, Water, Tailings and Greenhouse Gases drive the collaboration and innovation that make COSIA unique. COSIA’s EPA Directors and our Monitoring Director share the highlights of 2013 and a glimpse of what to expect in 2014.
COSIA’s member companies have developed a globally precedent setting framework to facilitate innovation through collaboration. This framework is based on the concept of equitable contribution.
Warren Zubot is a research associate at Syncrude. He discusses the work he is doing as Syncrude’s Steering Committee member for COSIA’s Water EPA.
Joy Romero, VP, Technology Development at Canadian Natural Resources Limited explains how they are using COSIA as a tool for driving environmental excellence and how they are integrating COSIA into their day-to-day operations.
November 26, 2013 marked the first annual COSIA Performance Update. The event provided an opportunity for stakeholders from industry, government, NGOs, media and Aboriginal groups to learn about the progress COSIA made in its first 21 months of operation.
On January 13, 2014 Shell Canada introduced its employees to their Environmental Performance Improvement campaign and how it will work in alignment with COSIA’s Environmental Performance Areas.
COSIA hosts and participates in a number of events each year, including COSIA’s own Water Conference and Globe 2014. Find out what’s on COSIA’s calendar for Q1 2014.
