Furthermore, the opportunities that the company will pursue will both lower emissions and operating costs. Some of the operational strategies include: optimizing pipeline capacity and operations; building cogeneration facilities as the Empress NGL Extraction Facility and Duvernay Complex; optimizing compression facilities to reduce the amount of energy consumed; as well as reducing flaring and venting.

On the other hand, the company will further seek opportunities regarding renewable energy. In fact, it is actively seeking opportunities to evolve into a lower carbon economy and achieve its GHG goals. To do so, the company will increase efforts like the power purchase agreement with TransAlta on the Garden Plain Wind project.

In addition, it will develop the Alberta Carbon Grid, which will allow Pembina to play a vital role in helping Alberta-based industries effectively manage emissions and contribute to a lower-carbon economy. Also, the company will evaluate pilot projects in carbon capture and storage at its gas processing facilities.

Finally, through 2022, the company will continue to progress in all of its ESG goals. In fact, Pembina has substantially advance its ESG strategies. In fact, the company already got independent third-party limited assurance for its Scope 1 and 2 emissions. It has also implemented methane leak detection systems at all its Canadian natural gas processing units.
