The Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers has presented the 2014 RCS awards to five oil and natural gas companies for innovative health and safety, environmental and social projects that demonstrate leadership in responsible resource development. The awards were presented to:
- Talisman – Health and Safety Award.
- Japan Canada Oil Sands – Social Award.
- Devon – Environment Award.
- Suncor – President’s Award.
- Laricina – Chair’s Award.
RCE Awards are part of the CAPP Responsible Canadian Energy Program. They provide a means for the oil and natural gas industry to share leading practices and to recognise specific projects that demonstrate industry leadership. The RCE Advisory Group consists of external leaders from the safety, environment, labour, aboriginal, academic, private, finance and investment sectors and they elected the 2014 recipients from a record 34 submissions. Nominations are accepted for projects that demonstrate a commitment to performance improvement in any of the three award areas:
- Health and Safety.
- Social Performance.
CAPP president, Dave Collyer said, "CAPP’s annual RCE awards recognise oil and natural gas companies demonstrating continuous performance improvement in health and safety, environment and social responsibility. The projects selected by CAPP’s RCE Advisory Group exemplify the innovation and best practices that help to elevate our overall performance as an industry. Congratulations to all the nominees and particularly to the award recipients."
Anne McLellan, RCE Awards Group chair said, "again this year, the submissions showcase the ongoing progress being made by the oil and gas industry in the crucial areas of environment, health and safety and social impact. This continued progress, and commitment, is key to retaining the public’s support for the industry."
