Encana issues its 2014 Sustainability Report

CALGARY, AB--(Marketwired - June 10, 2015) - Encana Corporation (TSX: ECA) (NYSE: ECA) has issued its 2014 Sustainability Report, highlighting the company's environmental, safety, social and governance (ES&G) performance.

"Realizing our vision of being a leading North American resource play company requires that we produce oil and gas in a safe and environmentally responsible manner," said Dave Lye, Vice-President, Policy, Environment & Sustainability. "We remain focused on the issues that matter the most to our stakeholders and our business and in 2014 we delivered one of Encana's strongest years for overall ES&G performance."

Highlights from the Sustainability Report include:

  • achieving a record year for health and safety performance, marked by the lowest total recordable injury frequency and motor vehicle incident frequency in company history
  • continuing focus on responsible water management, which resulted in around 43 percent of the company's total water needs being met by alternative water sources
  • beginning full operation of the Water Resource Hub near Dawson Creek, British Columbia, which uses saline water that is unfit for other uses to meet around 75 percent of the company's water requirements in the area
  • supporting nearly 1,170 charities with approximately $2.4 million through the company's annual charitable campaign, in which the company provides matching pledges to the registered charities that matter most to employees
