Safety, Environment & Social Responsibility Committee


The Safety, Environment & Social Responsibility Committee provides assistance and counsel to the Board and management of Finning in our drive towards attaining and maintaining world-class safety, health and environmental performance and sustainability through the oversight of management’s procedures and policies to ensure they build compliance into business processes and activities and meet or exceed any legal obligations.

The Committee supports management in the corporate goal of eliminating environmental incidents, work-related injuries and occupational illnesses that could result from the activities of Finning.

Community investment is also supported by the Committee, as well as any matter affecting Finning’s sustainable development in the Committee’s areas of oversight responsibility.
