Monitoring the environmental impacts of our operations
Since the late 1990s TELUS team members and contractors have been assessing our key owned and leased properties for compliance to several areas of corporate environmental policy and regulation. The results of these assessments are tracked and management team members then follow up on any issues that are identified.
Our 2011 goal was to conduct 1,750 site assessments with 1,700 conducted by our network technicians and 50 by Environment team members. We completed 1,790 environmental site assessments, with 1,740 completed by our network support field staff and 50 by our internal environmental risk team members.
Our target for 2012 is to again complete 1,750 site assessments, with 1,700 conducted by field staff and 50 by environmental risk team members.
