Yukon Energy Achieves Sustainable Electricity Company™ Designation: A First for Northern Canada

News, Media Releases

Feb 08, 2017  34

The Canadian Electricity Association (CEA) announced today that Yukon Energy Corporation has achieved the Sustainable Electricity Company™ designation for its commitment to sustainable business practices. Yukon Energy is only the fifth company to earn this designation and the first in northern Canada.

“This designation is a testament to Yukon Energy’s commitment to socially responsible and environmentally sustainable business practices,” said the Honourable Sergio Marchi, President and CEO of CEA. “A commitment that will ensure lasting benefits for their company, their customers, and to the communities in which they operate. I applaud Yukon Energy’s management team and staff on this outstanding achievement.”

The Sustainable Electricity Company™ designation was established by CEA for utilities across Canada. It recognizes sustainability efforts and acknowledges success against the three foundational pillars of sustainability – environmental, social and economic performance. This designation requires utilities to confirm to ISO 14001 standard on Environmental Management Systems and ISO 26000 Guidance on Social Responsibility. In addition, companies must pass an independent external verification.

“It’s an honour to receive this designation from the Canadian Electricity Association,” Yukon Energy President and CEO Andrew Hall said. “It recognizes the excellent job our employees do in delivering electricity in a sustainable and socially responsible manner.”

Distinct from the Sustainable Electricity Company™ designation, CEA and its Corporate Utility Members also demonstrate their commitment to sustainability through mandatory participation in CEA’s Sustainable Electricity program. The program takes a holistic approach to addressing sustainability issues, including environmental, societal, and economic challenges and opportunities.

Please visit the CEA website for more information on achieving Sustainable Electricity Company™ designation or on CEA’s mandatory Sustainable Electricity program.

About the Sustainable Electricity Company™ Designation
The Canadian Electricity Association recognizes that sustainable development is a must in the 21st century. The Sustainable Electricity Company™ brand is a designation based primarily on the ISO 26000 standard – Guidance on Social Responsibility.

I think that everything said was actually very reasonable.
But, what about this? suppose you added a little content?
I mean, I don’t want to tell you how to run your website, however suppose you added a title that grabbed folk’s attention? I mean Yukon Energy Achieves Sustainable Electricity Company™ Designation: A First for Northern Canada | Yukon Energy is a little plain. You might peek at Yahoo’s home
page and note how they create news titles to grab viewers interested.

You might add a video or a picture or two to grab people excited
about everything’ve written. In my opinion, it would make
your posts a little livelier.

Hi there! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog.
Is it difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick.
I’m thinking about setting up my own but I’m not sure where to

Howdy! I realize this is sort of off-topic however I needed to ask.

Does building a well-established blog such as yours require a large amount of work?
I am completely new to operating a blog but I do write in my journal daily.
I’d like to start a blog so I can share my experience and views online.

Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for brand new aspiring
blog owners. Appreciate it!

When I originally commented I seem to have clicked the -Notify

Perhaps there is an easy method you are able to
remove me from that service? Appreciate it!
