Biodiversity and Land Management

Protecting natural ecosystems remains a constant priority for us. As our network extends to three North American coasts, it passes through a wide range of habitats, including national parks, forests, prairies and wetlands. These habitats are home to rich and diverse species that provide essential ecosystem and social benefits to the surrounding communities. We are committed to improving the environment where we operate and conducting our activities and operations in a way that minimizes our disturbance of these ecosystems.

Our Initiatives

  • Conducting impact assessments
  • Preserving and restoring ecosystems
  • Cleaning up and remediating sites
  • Managing the vegetation
