CALGARY, March 30 /CNW/ - Alberta Ecotrust is pleased to announce that Pembina Pipeline Corporation has joined the Foundation's growing list of Corporate Partners. According to Alberta Ecotrust Executive Director Pat Letizia, "It is always a great day when a corporation becomes a full partner in our community, and we're particularly delighted to welcome Pembina on the strength of its keen interest in environmental stewardship. Pembina has been a long term Alberta Ecotrust supporter, and I'm pleased they have seen the value of increasing their investment in Alberta's environmental community. More good news is that we can now bring on a new environmental partner too."
As one of Western Canada's leading energy infrastructure providers, Pembina has a longstanding commitment to best practices in environmental management. According to Bob Michaleski, president and chief executive officer, "success is not just reflected in what we do, but how we get the job done. We set a very high standard for ourselves - and then deliver on our commitments. That includes generating value by operating in a safe and environmentally responsible manner."
Michaleski says the company's decision to become a full Ecotrust Corporate Partner was an easy one. "Pembina's involvement with Alberta Ecotrust complements the steps we're already taking to reduce our environmental footprint. Our partnership with Ecotrust enables us to pool resources and get involved in environmental projects that we may not have tackled independently."
Alberta Ecotrust Foundation was created in 1991 to bring progressive corporations and environmental organizations together in the common cause of identifying and supporting initiatives that protect, maintain and restore Alberta's environment. Under Alberta Ecotrust's unique business model, corporations and environmental organizations work side by side, in equal numbers, to allocate funds to a diverse range of projects across the province.
Pembina Pipeline Corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Pembina Pipeline Income Fund (PIF.UN and PIF.DB.B), transports crude oil and natural gas liquids produced in Western Canada, owns and operates oil sands pipelines and has a growing presence in the midstream and gas services sector.
