In the community
Bringing good energy everywhere we serve
As a family-owned company deeply rooted in our communities, we work hard to make a difference in the places we serve. Every day, we strive to put our good energy in action to bring families together, support the environment and local wildlife, and to create learning opportunities that empower the next generation.
At Irving Oil, we believe in the importance of family and community connections. That’s why we have created, and continue to support, a number of programs that bring families together.
Since 2002, our Fuel the Care program has helped bridge the distance between home and hospital by providing fuel cards to families in Atlantic Canada, Quebec and New England travelling to receive medical care for a child.
In County Cork, Ireland, we are proud to support Aghada GAA Club an important part of the local community, bringing together hundreds of children, youth and adult members for sports and recreation.
Education is a fundamental building block to a thriving community. We believe we can empower our communities through education, from classrooms to career building. We are proud to partner with academic institutions in the places we serve, to grow and develop our community’s future leaders right here at home. This commitment includes investing in students through our scholarship programs, and supporting the post-secondary educational facilities where they learn.
In 2016 we announced our formal contribution to the founding of the Arthur L. Irving Institute for Energy and Society at Dartmouth College.
We strive to raise the bar for responsible operations, reduce our environmental footprint and protect local wildlife. We aim to be among the first to adopt stringent fuel specifications, and to invest in emission control technology to improve our environmental performance. Our continuous improvement in environmental performance is a direct result of the investments we have made in our facilities.
Over the years we have built strong partnerships with Ducks Unlimited and the New England Aquarium, supporting education and research to protect our natural environment.
Good Energy in Action
Our employees are at the heart of our community giving. Our Good Energy in Action program empowers our people to give back to the causes they care about when and how it matters most to them.
We support our teams in spreading good energy in their communities by offering employee volunteer opportunities with organizations we support, time away from work to give back to employee’s own causes that they’re passionate about and matched funds for donations every year.
