Tenaris plays an important role in Responsible Resource Development. They are an innovative company with skilled jobs that service the resource sector by providing quality steel pipe products to major economic projects, so that Canada’s natural resources are responsibly developed for the benefit of all Canadians.

The plan for Responsible Resources Development is founded on four main pillars: making project reviews more predictable and timely; reducing duplication of project reviews; strengthening environmental protection; and enhancing consultations with Aboriginal peoples. This plan will allow Canada to achieve the goal of one project, one review, in a clearly defined time period. It will also achieve the balance we need now to unleash the potential of our resource sector to create good jobs across Canada while ensuring strong environmental protection.
