Because we are accountable and care about our impact, we regularly invest in the environment to improve our performance. Over the past 20 years, we have made more than $420 million in environmental investments. In addition to emission reductions, which are closely monitored, we have taken concrete action to reduce dust and noise. Similarly, we have a soil quality monitoring program in the Notre Dame neighbourhood that uses preventive criteria to safeguard health and safety.

These actions are effective when they deliver significant results: we have reduced dust emissions and are recovering over 96% of the sulfur fed into our process.
