Our Culture

Every corporate culture is unique. We strive for more than unique by fostering beliefs and actions that are true to and respectful of our many stakeholders.

At TransAlta, that means we:

Invest where we live and work

Being a good neighbour means investing in and making a commitment to the communities in which we operate. Beside our funding of significant local initiatives, our employees also donate thousands of hours of their own time to countless community programs.

Operate and grow sustainably

Success over the long haul requires that business operations and growth take the environment, social concerns, and the economics of doing business into account. We work hard to do all three well and we report on our efforts annually through our Report on Sustainability.

Put safety first

Integrating safety into our daily culture is a part of the job at TransAlta. Through incentive-based programs and annual safety awards, we have committed to making safety a priority in all that we do.

Are responsible to many groups and individuals

Our operations have an impact on many groups with diverse interests – from the general public to regulators, nearby landowners, Aboriginals, governments, employees, investors, and many more. We listen, carefully consider our stakeholder needs, and are responsive to issues and concerns. Read more about our consultation process.
