Heartland Generation recognizes the privilege - and the responsibility - we have in powering the communities where we operate.
We are strong supporters of the transition to a reliable, low carbon energy future and are proud to be playing a leading role in Alberta in the reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG). In late 2021, we completed our coal-to-gas conversions and are actively investing in new opportunities, such as our Battle River Carbon Hub (BRCH) project, that will position our assets to play a meaningful role in the energy transition.
Our 2021 ESG Report
We are pleased to share our inaugural ESG Report, creating a benchmark for our company and demonstrating our commitment to transparency and accountability. We have an ambitious, yet measured, approach to lowering emissions, along with good governance, and best-in-class safety. We are committed and working toward our goal of net zero by 2050 and support Canada’s increased commitment to lowering its emissions through the Paris Agreement, by reducing emissions 40-45 percent below 2005 levels, by 2030.
Metrics & Frameworks
Our report is guided by the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and includes metrics that are most relevant to our industry and our company as well as the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) Standard for Electric Utilities Power Generators. Heartland Generation also supports the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs), which promote prosperity while protecting the planet. The UNSDGs recognize the collective need to work for economic growth and to address a range of social needs including education, health, social protection, and job opportunities, while tackling climate change and environmental protection.
