We recognize that how we interact with the environment is of vital importance to you. It is to us, too. We believe that excellence in environmental practices is vital to the well-being of people everywhere and is essential to all aspects of our business.

“TransCanada has a long-standing commitment to protecting the environment where we work and live. We work hard every day to responsibly manage and minimize our environmental footprint in everything we do – whether it’s designing, building or operating energy infrastructure.”

– Kristine Delkus, Executive Vice-President, Stakeholder Relations and General Counsel


A few environmental highlights:

  • 40,000 plants relocated along our Mexico Topolobampo pipeline right of way since the project began, ensuring the preservation of ecosystems along the entire pipeline and exemplifying our commitment to leave the land in a condition equal to or better than we found it.
  • 12.3 million pieces of paper saved since the implementation of our various printing initiatives. A stack of all the paper saved would be the equivalent height of almost three Empire State Buildings stacked vertically.
  • $6.8 million in cost benefits from environment-related research and development initiatives in 20141.
  • $5 billion invested in emission-less energy sources – including nuclear, wind, hydro and solar – accounting for over one-third of the power we produce.
  • In 2015, TransCanada worked collaboratively with and donated $1.4 million to 68 non-profit environmental organizations to conserve important habitat, protect species at risk and educate individuals about the importance of the environment.
