Vermilion’s core values of Excellence, Trust, Respect and Responsibility have guided what we do and how we do it throughout our more than 20-year history. We believe that in order to be successful, a business must prioritize people and the environment over profit. Accordingly, we are committed to conducting our activities in a manner that protects the health and safety of the people that work with us and that live in the communities in which we operate. We strive to operate our business in the most environmentally responsible manner possible.
Vermilion understands that we all have a role to play in addressing the environmental impacts of a carbon economy, whether as producers or consumers of fossil fuel energy. That is why we remain committed to minimizing our environmental impact by investing in technologies to maximize energy and water-use efficiency as well as reduce our greenhouse gas emissions. We carefully consider the lands and people impacted by our operations and we treat our people, partners, suppliers, and members of the community respectfully and fairly.
Our people subscribe to the belief that successful, well-managed companies include sustainability as a core element of their business strategy. We believe that by emphasizing the importance of sustainability, we are not only mitigating worker safety, public safety, environmental, financial and reputational risks, but that we will ultimately generate economic and social benefits for all our stakeholders including those in the communities in which we operate.
