We work to build strong relationships with the communities near our operations and ensure the safety of our workforce

Source Energy Services is founded on a commitment to people and environmental sustainability. Our safety culture is driven by a pursuit to achieve safety excellence and we are uncompromising stewards of the environment. We work to engage and form strong relationships with local communities surrounding our operations.

Environment

We are proud to be part of Canada’s oil and gas industry – an industry which has some of the highest environmental and safety standards of any other oil and gas producing country. We strive to exceed environmental and safety expectations throughout every stage of our operations.

Land Reclamation

Land reclamation is a key activity Source Energy completes during the mining process. Once a section of our mine has been completed the area is backfilled and seeded to return the land back to a thriving vegetative state.  In 2021, Source Energy Services reclaimed 33.8 acres of land at our Wisconsin production facilities.

Water Recycling

We have engineered our processing facilities with environmental sustainability in mind by incorporating a closed-loop water system that recycles production water. Our closed-loop water systems enable our wash plants to operate without discharging processed water into dry runs, wetlands or creeks. This allows us to reuse the water in our production processes, significantly minimizing the need for groundwater withdrawals. Since 2018, Source Energy Services has recycled over 532 million gallons of water back into production and continues to monitor and improve its water recycling processes.

Health and Safety

At Source Energy Services, we believe safe work environments are the result of a deliberate and intentional focus on a safety culture that drives successful behaviours across all levels of the organization.

Safety Excellence

Our Safety Vision Statement, “The relentless pursuit of safety excellence, driven by all levels of the organization,” is the basis for three strategic pillars that drive the HSE culture: Leadership, Learning, and Engagement. The safety culture at Source Energy Services ensures all employees keep our People First core value top of mind.

Creating Safe Working Habits

Source Energy Services has developed programs to encourage safe working habits through peer-to-peer behavioural observations and proactive hazard identification. Our Body ImpACT program provides our employees with tools to protect themselves and their co-workers from harm, consisting of two components: Mind and Matter, and Hands and Feet.

The Hands and Feet course provides employees with proper techniques for stepping, handling and lifting.

The Minds and Matter program helps identify individual personal safety weaknesses, along with guidance on how to properly communicate safety concerns to others.

Sustainability

We take pride in our business, our industry, and the strong ESG culture we have developed at Source Energy Services.

Consistent with many other participants in our industry, Source has, since its inception, made a conscious effort to operate its business the right way. As a result, we have always been committed to keeping employees safe, being environmentally responsible in its operations, supportive of our employees in their social responsibility efforts, and proactive in fostering vibrant and resilient communities for all our stakeholders.

Our 2021 ESG Report primarily focuses on our 2020 performance and on the information and topics that are important to our stakeholders.

Source Energy Services Arena and Rec Centre

In partnership with the Wembley & District Agricultural Society, Source Energy provided $100,000 over five years to support the Wembley Arena and Recreation Centre. The Arena and Rec Centre is not only home to Wembley Wildcats Hockey but is also a pillar of the community with its many programs, fitness room and rec centre.

“We’re very excited that Source has supported this community association like they have. It’s a large chunk of money for us and the board is just completely excited about our future with Source” – Eric Sundstrom, President of the Wembley & District Agricultural Society.

The ALS Society of Alberta

The ALS Society of Alberta is a charitable organization dedicated to making each day the best possible day for people living with and affected by ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis). ALS is a terminal disease with a life expectancy of 2-5 years after diagnosis. They achieve their mission by providing support, facilitating the provision of care, providing adaptive mobility and communication equipment, promoting awareness, helping find a cure, and advocating for change. They are the only organization in Alberta providing support for people living with ALS and their families. The organization provides support across Alberta, including multiple communities that Source Energy Services has a presence in – Grande Prairie, Red Deer, Calgary, and Edson. The funds from Source’s 2021 donation are going to support the ALS Society’s Client Services Support Program and their Equipment Loan Program.

The Unlocking Potential (UP) Foundation

In 2021 the Calgary Source Energy Services Team participated in the Calgary Marathon’s Charity Challenge and raised funds for the Unlocking Potential Foundation (UP Foundation).  In total $12,570 was raised by Team Source Energy Services, which went to support the UP Foundation’s Never Too Late program.

The Never Too Late program provides no-cost academic, social and emotional support to adult learners who want to complete their GED (General Education Development or high school equivalency). Learning occurs in community with a cohort of students who share the same dream: to become a high school graduate.

Grande Prairie Mall Wrap a Gift & Give a Gift 2021 Campaign

Back for the 4th year after a hiatus in 2020 due to the pandemic, Source Energy Services has once again sponsored the Prairie Mall’s Wrap a Gift & Give a Gift 2021 Campaign in Grande Prairie. The campaign is organized by the mall and is staffed by volunteers wrapping Christmas gifts to earn money for their local organizations. Throughout the entire holiday season, anyone is welcome to drop by the station to have their gifts wrapped by and support local non-profits at the same time.

Source has sponsored this initiative in 2017, 2018, and 2019 as well.

2019, 2020, & 2021 Hospital Activity Book for Children

The Hospital Activity Book for Children, Red Deer, provides free activity books for kids to hospitals, medical service units, paediatric centres, victim service units and many other services. Source has sponsored this organization for their past three campaigns. The activity books are filled with games, colouring pages, word puzzles, and even little recipes they can do with their parents once they return home. The Hospital Activity Book for Children also works in partnership with Make-A-Wish Canada. A portion of our sponsorship was given to Make-A-Wish Canada, which grants 10 wishes every year for critically ill children with The Hospital Activity Book for Children organization.

2019, 2020, & 2021 Holiday Toy Drive for The Women's Centre of Calgary

The Women’s Centre Holiday Toy Room helps women and families in need by operating a gift program, where women are able to choose a holiday gift for their children, as well as a gift for themselves.

2020 Holiday Hamper Campaign

​During the 2020 holiday season, to get into the holiday spirit, several Source Energy Services locations put together holiday hampers to donate to charitable organizations in their communities. Our employees at the Edson, Fox Creek, Lampman, Red Deer, and Wembley offices donated food, gifts, and sometimes even funds to support these organizations and it was great to see such a direct impact in these communities.

2019 Holiday Hamper Campaign

At Source, it is our goal to give back and support the communities that we operate in. During the 2019 holiday season, we launched a holiday hamper campaign across all of our locations. Our employees donated food, gifts, and funds to support local organizations in each of the communities that we operate in, and it was great to see such a direct impact. Some of the organizations we worked with included: The Red Deer Food Bank, the Helen E. Taylor School in Wembley, AB, the Lampman & District Lions Club, the Grande Prairie Saint Lawrence Centre, the Calgary Food Bank, the Kinette Club of Edson, and a local church in Chetwynd.

In May 2019 Source Energy hosted a series of HCL awareness presentations in partnership with Chemtrade. The presentations provided information regarding the safe handling, delivery and storage of HCL to employees, transport companies and local emergency responders. Hosting the presentations reaffirmed our commitment to being recognized as a Responsible Care Company by the Chemistry Industry Association of Canada.
