At Eclipsol, we are committed to participating in and improving the quality of life in communities where our employees live, work and play.
Our commitment to social responsibility and our Code of Ethics means we believe it is our responsibility to contribute to the well-being of our employees and their families, the environment in which they work, and the communities in which we operate.
We are committed to respecting the long-term health and viability of the natural environments affected by our projects by applying a precautionary, proactive risk-management approach to safeguarding the environment and preventing or mitigating the impacts of environmental incidents. Working with the appropriate government agencies, partners and key stakeholders, our goal is to ensure that our activities meet or exceed legal requirements and societal expectations.
We continually seek new strategies for enhancing our environmental performance, including programs to improve energy efficiency, reduce our carbon footprint and waste and minimize our use of water and other resources. At every stage of the project life cycle, we apply best practices in environmental management. From the earliest site investigations, we carry out comprehensive environmental studies to establish baseline measurements for flora, fauna, land, air and water. During operations we will promote the efficient use of resources, work to minimize environmental impacts and maintain robust monitoring programs, including groundwater and air quality.
Eclipsol is actively engaged in building relations with the First Nation communities with traditional lands that encompass our projects. Further agreements and partnerships are being explored with other First Nations across the province where Eclipsol and its subsidiary companies operate. Active participation in the communities where we operate is our commitment to strengthening those communities.
Safety is a priority in our company. Eclipsol is committed to occupational health and safety management practices which are in the best interests of our employees, business partners and the communities in which we operate.
Eclipsol’s objective is to achieve a safe and healthy workplace free of injury and illness.
We are committed to the health, safety and well-being of our workforce and will strive to achieve an incident‐free workplace in a holistic and inclusive manner.
We recognize that individuals, through their own behaviours and actions, are ultimately responsible for safety. We encourage and support all employees to achieve our goals by incorporating into their planning and work the actions necessary to ensure the safety of themselves and others in the workplace.
