Compliance

CCR is committed to compliance with all applicable local, provincial, and federal environmental regulations at a minimum.  Where appropriate, we will strive to go beyond, including exploring technically feasible and economically practical methods to help us make a positive impact on the environment such as energy-efficient lighting.

Waste minimization through reduction, recycling, and reuse is an important aspect for the entire company.  Employees are encouraged to recycle and/or reuse materials such as paper and cardboard and organic matter, including paper-based coffee cups and paper hand towels, are diverted from the waste stream and sent for composting instead.

CCR monitors its energy usage and waste generation and has summarized the results for 2015 below: 

Category Amount (Dec 2014 – Nov 2015) Objective for 2016
Hydro usage 72,500 kWh Maintain current levels despite a 15% increase in personnel
Waste generation 3 MT (estimated) Maintain current levels despite a 15% increase in personnel
Greenhouse gas generation 50 MT (based on hydro usage) Maintain current levels despite a 15% increase in personnel

 CCR has never had any regulatory fines or penalties.
