Responsible Operations

We are committed to meeting our customers’ and communities’ expectations of responsible environmental stewardship. As residents of Northwest British Columbia, everyone at Trigon appreciates the terminal’s stunning natural setting and its ecological richness, and shares a determination to leave it undiminished.

Key operational practices and safeguards include:

  • Dust control at all handling stages, including spraying and misting systems activated in part through real-time weather monitoring
  • Ongoing reductions in carbon emissions, including optimizing site and equipment use and fleet electrification
  • Surface water containment, testing and treatment, with tight limits on and continuous monitoring of effluent volumes
  • Waste reduction program to maximize recovery and re-use while reducing landfill needs
  • Best-practices sharing with the port authority and other terminal operators, and coordination on specific initiatives such as local air-quality monitoring

At the foundation is our Health, Safety, Environment and Quality Policy, and our ISO-certified Environmental Management System (4001 standard). The rigour of this set of standards and procedures is independently verified through external compliance audits completed annually. Trigon is one of the few companies in our industry with ISO certification of all key management systems, including ISO 9001 certification of our Quality Management System.

Verification of our commitment to environmental responsibility goes further still:
