GOOD CORPORATE CITIZENSHIP STARTS WITH EXCEPTIONAL VALUES
60 YEARS IN THE MAKING
Good corporate citizenship has always been an integral part of Northwest Tank Lines’ culture. Over the years, we have committed considerable resources – monetary and human – to a wide variety of worthy organizations and programs throughout Canada and the United States. This commitment has been fuelled by a keen desire to support our team members and customers, and the communities in which they live and work.
While we recognize that we can’t be all things to all people, we do believe that the initiatives we are undertaking are valuable and should continue in earnest for the next 60 years. That’s why Northwest Tank Lines has consolidated our key initiatives under one umbrella – Northwest CARES.
These are the fundamental values we have been driven by in the past, which will continue to guide us into the future.
Under the Northwest CARES umbrella, we proudly participate in the following programs and initiatives:
Transportation Community Awareness and Emergency Response is a nation-wide community outreach program that addresses community concerns about the transportation of hazardous materials. As a founding member, Northwest Tank Lines has actively participated in more than 75 TransCAER community events over the past 25 years.
Responsible Care is a program that was launched by the Chemistry Industry Association of Canada in the 1980s. It provides a clear set of guiding principles and codes of practice that its members must follow to ensure the safe handling of chemicals. As a Responsible Care partner, Northwest is committed to establishing effective management systems relating to health and safety, security, and the environment.
Northwest is proud to support a variety of charities and charitable events in the communities where we operate across western Canada including:
- Between Friends
- Big Brothers Big Sisters
- The Dream Centre
- Challenger Charity
- The Michael Cuccione Foundation
- The Father Bauer on Behalf of UBC Men’s Varsity Hockey
- The Calgary Children’s Hospital
- The Langley Memorial Hospital
- The Ross Lumb Memorial Fund
- The Benalto Rodeo
