3 ABOUT THE SUSTAINABLE ELECTRICITY PROGRAM Sustainable Electricity is a mandatory sustainability program developed and implemented by the Corporate Utility Members of the Canadian Electricity Association (CEA). Launched on February 19, 2009, the program aims to promote the integration of sustainability into Corporate Utility Members decision-making and to continuously improve their performance. Together, CEA and Corporate Utility Members are committed to sustainable development, which is defined as: Pursuing progressive business strategies and activities that meet the needs of the present, while enhancing the environmental, social, and economic resources that will be needed in the future. The Canadian Electricity Sector s Commitment to Sustainability 1

4 GOVERNANCE STRUCTURE The Sustainable Electricity program is implemented under the strategic guidance of the CEA Board of Directors and the Board Committee on Sustainability. The two working groups provide guidance on the development of management frameworks, key performance indicators, and other methodological issues. The Public Advisory Panel, composed of several distinguished Canadians, provides an independent external perspective on the sector s sustainability performance.

7 PRINCIPLES CEA and its Corporate Utility Members are committed to the following principles: Environmental Stewardship: Manage facilities and operations through a risk-based approach that avoids or minimizes impacts on the environment (air, land, and water) and supports ecosystem protection and conservation of biological diversity. Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation: Mitigate greenhouse gas emissions from facilities and operations, and adapt to the adverse effects of climate change on electricity infrastructure. Employee, Contractor, and Public Health and Safety: Provide a safe and healthy workplace for employees and contractors, and promote public safety. Human Resources and Workplace: Support fair recruitment, training, and talent retention processes that meet the needs of company operations while ensuring on-going employee satisfaction, well-being, and diversity. Stakeholder Engagement and Transparency: Communicate and engage with stakeholders and partners in an open and transparent manner for all proposed and established operations and activities. The Canadian Electricity Sector s Commitment to Sustainability 5

8 Aboriginal Engagement: Build mutually-beneficial relationships with Aboriginal Peoples and communities based on trust and respect. Economic Value and Community Investments: Provide economic benefits to shareholders, communities, and regions in which companies operate. Electricity Demand, Efficiency, and Conservation: Produce, deliver, and use electricity in an efficient manner while promoting energy conservation programs, including for low-income customers, as applicable to company operations. Infrastructure Renewal and Modernization: Invest in the renewal and modernization of generation, transmission, and distribution systems to meet the current and future energy needs of customers in a safe, reliable, and cost-effective manner. Business Model Pressures: Engage and work collaboratively with utility regulators, policy-makers, stakeholders, technology providers, and supply chain partners to meet evolving customer expectations and business requirements. 6 SUSTAINABLE ELECTRICITY

9 SUPPORTING ELEMENTS Standard Implementation All Corporate Utility Members must have an Environmental Management System (EMS) consistent with ISO 14001:2004. No external registration is required. External Verification All Corporate Utility Members must undergo an external verification of performance once every four years. Membership Participation in the Sustainable Electricity Program is a condition of membership for Corporate Utility Members. AWARDS The Sustainable Electricity program rewards exceptional sustainable development performance. Many Corporate Utility Members invest in innovative and cutting-edge projects that have lasting benefits to the communities in which they operate. The Sustainable Electricity awards program recognizes companies that reduce adverse impacts and contribute to environmental, social, or economic sustainability and the long-term success of the electricity sector. A full list of past winners and their influential projects can be found at The Canadian Electricity Sector s Commitment to Sustainability 7
