Encana, an ethical company

by minou22 on February 27, 2013 - 11:41pm

Encana is a Canadian company in Calgary. Encana is a leading North American energy producer that is producing natural gas, oil and natural gas liquids. I found Encana by searching on google. Then, I went on a list of the one hundred and ten most ethical companies. Encana was one of them and I found interesting that a company producing energy is ethical. I red a little about them and I was surprised how environmentally implicated they are. In fact, they have the Responsible Products Program to make sure that the hydraulic fracturing fluid products they use are as safe, effective and as environmentally responsible as possible. Also, they do care about how water is a precious resource. One of the efforts they made to preserve water is using unutilized water such as saline, non-potable water from deep formations and recycled water. Encana is also implicated in their community, they support scholarship with the Encana Community Scholarships. The company helps some food banks with their program Race Against Hunger. Finally, they encourage and support their employees with some employee programs. The logo of Encana is composed with two colors, blue and green. Those colors remind me of nature, water, earth and environment. The shape of it looks like mountains. So, I assume it reflects the image they want to project : they are an environmentally friendly company. To conclude Encana is clearly an ethical company because of everything they make to preserve environment and to help the community.

Really interesting article, Encana sounds like an amazing compagny. Resently, I wrote on article that can relate to yours . Mine's about the Albertan oil industry. Canada is planning on tapping into the tar sands and selling it to the Americans. They plan on building a pipeline going from Alberta to Texas; where it will be refined and turned into useable oil. The tar sands are consisdered to be one of the dirtiest forms of energy and in my opinion be a last resort. Hopefully that Encana could influence its competiters to be more environmentaly friendly. Heres a link to my article if your interested.

How relieving to see that a Canadian company is able to have valuable ethical considerations! Not only is it environmentally preoccupied, but it donates money to causes they have to heart. Encana proves that even if companies want to make money, they can also do it by helping out others that are less financially wealthy and by respecting the environment. Their preoccupation for water is the one that impresses me the most: companies often use drinkable water and spoil it, while they also have access to water that is isn’t useful anymore, except for the company’s purpose. The implication Encana has for many social changes is impressive.
