Fostering Cleaner Communities

Inter Pipeline’s community commitment was evident this spring as groups from across the company headed out to help clean up local green spaces.

This spring, Inter Pipeline organized and participated in a series of community clean-ups known as Clean4Change events. Over 100 Inter Pipeline employees will have volunteered their time to pick up waste in and around their communities.

As of May, Inter Pipeline volunteers in Calgary were able to collect approximately 1,100 lbs of waste, but our efforts are ongoing. We plan to continue our Clean4Change initiatives throughout May and June in the communities where we live and work across Alberta.

“It’s amazing how much Inter Pipeline cares for the communities where we live and operate in,” says Chris Fiedler, Advisor, NGL, and this year’s captain of Inter Pipeline’s West Hillhurst Clean4Change team. “Considering the size of our organization, we accomplish a lot and really prioritize giving back to our communities. It feels great working for a company that allows its employees to take the time out of their day and participate in initiatives like Clean4Change.”

Partnering With Alliance to End Plastic Waste

Clean4Change was initially an initiative that was created by the non-profit organization, Alliance to End Plastic Waste (AEPW), to clean our communities through learning, understanding, and acting. 

Inter Pipeline partnered with AEPW in March 2021. Since then, we have participated in over 40 clean ups across our offices in Alberta. We were among the first Canadian companies to join AEPW since their formation in 2019. Inter Pipeline’s vision of ending plastic waste and moving to a circular economy is rooted in Plastic Research in Action (PRIA), a collaboration between our polypropylene brand, Heartland Polymers, and The Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT).

“Caring for our communities and working together as a team are key core values of Inter Pipeline,” says Daylene Kutnikoff, Coordinator, Office Services, and captain of Inter Pipeline’s Sherwood Park Clean4Change team. “Events like Clean4Change aren’t just about cleaning up garbage in our neighbourhoods; it’s about investing in the health and future of the places we call home. I also really enjoy how these events provide us with an opportunity to connect with team members in our organization whom we might not typically interact with on a regular basis!”
