Baytex plans to prosper over the long term. To do so, we must create value for all of our stakeholders. This is what is called shared value. It’s not about simply making donations. Shared value is when our normal course of business responsibly creates value for all stakeholders. Developing oil and gas resources requires long-term commitment. Collaboration with a broad range of engaged stakeholders is important to achieve enduring success in resource development.

We believe that by acting as a responsible company in all aspects of our operations, not just financial, we create long-term value for all stakeholders. That value can come in the form of employee opportunities for personal growth, an improved quality of life in communities where we operate, greater business opportunities for Aboriginal groups, and an attractive return on investment for shareholders. More broadly, society benefits from environmentally responsible development that produces reliable energy at a reasonable cost. Developing oil and gas resources requires a long-term commitment. Accordingly, we will continue to focus on creating value for all stakeholders over the long-term. Please click on the report on the right to read our full 2012 Corporate Responsibility Report.
