Phil recently attended the COSIA Associate Members Conference in Calgary from October 17th-20th. The Canadian Oil Sands Innovation Alliance (COSIA) is an alliance of oil sands producers focused on accelerating the pace of improvement in environmental performance in Canada’s oil sands through collaborative action and innovation.

The alliance was launched March 1, 2012 when representatives of 13 companies came together in Calgary to sign the COSIA charter, signifying their agreement with COSIA’s vision, their support of our alliance’s beliefs, and their pledge to uphold the commitments put forward in the charter.

COSIA brings together leading thinkers from industry, government, academia and the wider public to improve measurement, accountability and environmental performance in the oil sands in four priority areas. These four Environmental Priority Areas (EPAs) are tailings,water, land and greenhouse gases.

Phil attended to connect with the major oil sands companies about their current projects in the greenhouse gas emission, reduction, and conversion.
