Alberta's natural resources
industries are dynamic entities that are always looking for better ways to make
productive use of Alberta's natural world.
Although industries are not
perfect, they try to be aware of environmental issues and to develop their
resources in an environmentally sound manner. This work requires innovations in
research and technology and is something most industries spend a lot of money
Innovations and new
technologies are also developed to increase company revenues. The ideal
situation would be if resource development companies were able to reduce their
environmental footprint and make more money, as well. Fortunately, many
companies have adopted the ideals of environmental stewardship and are well on
their way to achieving this goal.
