It is challenges like this that led us to become engineers and project professionals. Challenge accepted.
ESG Has Always Been A Capital Focus
An Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) program should get to the heart of why you are in business, who you are as a company, what your impact on the world is, how you align your business model with the needs of society and how you engage your people, your clients, and stakeholders.
Sustainability and ESG Programs are about influencing and making impacts where you can, regardless of your size. To make the kind of positive changes that are required whether that’s moving towards a lower carbon future or ensuring equality exists for all in the workplace – we all need to do our part.
Capital was founded around the sense of family and community, and it is here where we look to create meaningful change and are seeking and identifying opportunities to:
- Deliver projects and support assets that are part of the energy transition and will lead to a more sustainable future for our families and communities.
- Assist the communities that we live and work in by creating opportunities for lasting improvement.
- Further the practice of engineering to be more fully inclusive and diverse.
Indigenous Engagement & Reconciliation
Safety & Wellbeing of Everyone on our team
Dedicated to Building Our Community
INDIGENOUS ENGAGEMENT & RECONCILIATION
Our Home on Native land
A key part of Capital’s ESG program is our commitment to the communities in which we live and work. Capital’s office is situated on Treaty 6 land and many of our work sites in Alberta and British Columbia are located on the traditional lands of Indigenous peoples. Capital’s Indigenous Engagement plan is continually evolving to allow us to ensure that our actions benefit our Indigenous neighbours. Underpinning our Reconciliation and Indigenous engagement efforts are education and partnerships.
Capital Engineering acknowledges that we live and work on Treaty 6 territory and within the Metis Nation of Alberta Region 4, an ancestral home and meeting place for many Peoples, including Cree, Blackfoot, Dene, Ojibway, Saulteaux, Papaschase First Nation, Anishinaabe, Nakota Sioux, Métis and Inuit. Indigenous cultures are an important part of this area’s past and present, and a critical part of its future.
We recognize that we are guests on this land and are committed to a process of meaningful reconciliation. Our goal in this journey is to work collaboratively with Indigenous peoples, so our work can result in benefits to the land and to all of those that call it home.
Through reciprocal efforts and gained appreciation of Indigenous history and cultures, we are working to progress our nation’s process of healing.
HEALTH & SAFETY
Ensuring The Safety of our team and clients
There is no greater duty of leadership than to ensure that everyone goes home safely each and every day.
We have an unwavering commitment to safe operations, protecting the environment and ensuring the well-being of those who have been entrusted to our care, whether it be directly, or through our engineering and designs that are part of our client’s operations.
Health and safety is not one-dimensional. To ensure people can perform at their best and remain focused on safety critical functions a holistic and inter-connected approach to wellness that includes social, psychological, financial, and physical elements needs to exist. Creating a workplace where we take care of each other, and that people feel safe and supported is critical to creating a culture of safety and delivering exceptional performance.
