On June 6, 2013 TransCanada Corporation officially released our 2013 Corporate Social Responsibility Report. The 2013 Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Report was released during Canadian Environment Week as a testament to our commitment to operating in an economically, socially and environmentally sustainable manner, while recognizing the interests of our stakeholders.

Our 2013 CSR Report is focused on 10 areas of key importance to both us and to our stakeholders. These areas of key importance were identified using TransCanada’s materiality process and our report highlights our successes and challenges in these areas. Check our TransCanada 2013 CSR Report campaign for FMRs on each of our 10 material areas of focus.

Today we are highlighting Access to New Markets

Our over 60-year record of safety and reliability, coupled with a reputation for respectful and long-standing relationships with the communities where we operate, has made TransCanada one of North America's most sought-after partners in energy infrastructure. With an unprecedented $38 billion in capital projects in development across the continent, the strength of confidence we inspire is evident in the scope of our portfolio.

Each new project is an opportunity for further job creation, community investment and economic stimulus. It's an opportunity for every team member to contribute project rigour, coordination, responsiveness and accountability. While we cannot win support on every single project we undertake, we do commit to listening to what our stakeholders say matters to them — and acting on it.
