Who we are

We’re Canada’s largest oil sands producers working together to address climate change. Our six companies operate about 95% of Canada’s oil sands production.

The Pathway’s Alliance organization includes our ambitious plan to achieve our goal of net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, Canada’s Oil Sands Innovation Alliance (COSIA)’s environmental innovation work focused on reducing industry’s impacts to air, water and land while accelerating tailings reclamation, and the Oil Sands Community Alliance (OSCA)’s long-standing commitment of being a collaborative partner in the community to help manage socioeconomic impacts and benefits.

Our mission

Our goal is to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions from our operations by 2050, while supplying the energy the world needs. That’s why we’re working with the federal and provincial governments to help meet Canada’s climate goals.

Collaboration will get us there

Finding realistic and workable solutions to the challenge of climate change, depends on industry-government collaboration.

What we believe

We know Canadian ingenuity, leadership and collaboration can solve the climate challenge. And the most effective way forward will come from new technologies.

We believe

  • Climate change is a critical challenge and we play an important role in achieving a sustainable future.
  • Our commitment and know-how can bring our oil production to net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
  • The way forward is through collaboration between industry, government, Indigenous communities and stakeholders.

Joining forces as Pathways Alliance

We are pleased to announce that Oil Sands Pathways to Net Zero Alliance, Canada’s Oil Sands Innovation Alliance (COSIA) and the Oil Sands Community Alliance (OSCA) are all coming together as one organization called Pathways Alliance.  

By becoming one organization, Pathways Alliance will further amplify our industry’s collaborative efforts. It will include the Pathways Alliance’s ambitious plan to achieve our goal of net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, COSIA’s environmental innovation work focused on reducing industry’s impacts to air, water and land while accelerating tailings reclamation, and OSCA’s long-standing commitment of being a collaborative partner in the community to help manage socioeconomic impacts and benefits.  

COSIA

Canada’s Oil Sands Innovation Alliance (COSIA) collaborates and innovates. Their vision is to enable responsible and sustainable growth of Canada’s oil sands while delivering accelerated improvement in environmental performance through collaborative action and innovation.

COSIA brings together leading thinkers from industry, government, academia and the wider public to improve measurement, accountability and environmental performance in the oil sands in four priority areas. These four Environmental Priority Areas (EPAs) are greenhouse gases, land, water and tailings.

OSCA

The Oil Sands Community Alliance builds shared value and healthy communities to enable the sustainable development of Canada’s oil sands and the region where we operate. We use a collaborative approach to facilitate engagement among stakeholders including municipalities, government and industry. Collaboration builds relationships and creates opportunities for dialogue, information exchange and shared success.
