IMPERIAL OIL FOUNDATIONCategory: Corporate, Partners
The oil and gas industry and environmentalists are often viewed as adversaries, but given the chance, they can work together for the benefit of the environment. Alberta Ecotrust is a quality organization, and, as a group that is working to improve Alberta’s environment, is a natural fit for Imperial.
Imperial has been a major contributor to the growth of the petroleum industry and to Canada’s economic and social development for more than 125 years. In 1890, Imperial gave its first donation to a fisherman’s mission in Newfoundland, since then charitable giving has been an integral part of the company.
The Imperial Oil Foundation, Imperial’s main philanthropic arm, concentrates support in the areas of education, environment and civic and community programs. The Foundation provides funding and expertise to hundreds of community partners across Canada.
