Doing Our Part – Preserving Chaplin Lake

An Open Letter from Rodney McCann

At a time when environmental disasters take their toll on the environment and on people’s very lives, it’s remained important for us as your supplier, partner, customer and employer to openly confirm that we at Saskatchewan Minerals have always practiced and will continue to be guided by the highest level of corporate, social and environmental accountability.

More than ever before, companies should be challenged to put their money where their mouths are. Saskatchewan Minerals has been both discreetly aware of, and passionately committed to its corporate, social and environmental responsibilities for 63 years now. It is not a new mandate or change in practice. It’s an integral part of our culture and one of our core values. It is who we are and how we conduct our business. We’re very proud of our long history of responsible stewardship.

Seeing concrete examples of how organizations harness their resources for good is always inspiring. I’d like to share with you a remarkable project that Saskatchewan Minerals is involved in – maintaining and preserving Chaplin Lake and the Chaplin Lake Nature Centre.

Personally, as the father of four, I’m keenly interested in how our efforts today will impact the next generation tomorrow. Saskatchewan Minerals encourages sustainability in the broadest sense –sustainability of our business, our community, our environment and our world. As a company that draws its resource from the Earth, there is always a give-and-take relationship that must be respected. It is critical that we continuously repair, replace and replenish as we go. Careful nurturing of our environment and communities is the key to our long success. It’s as simple as that.
