Corporate Social Responsibility
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is viewed as a decision-making and implementation process that guides all of our activities. These include the protection and promotion of human rights, socio-economic contributions, health and safety, environmental performance and compliance with legal requirements. CSR involves a commitment to contribute to the economic, environmental and social sustainability of communities through the ongoing engagement of stakeholders, the active participation of communities impacted by our activities and the public reporting of policies and performance in the economic, environmental and social arenas.

Annual Food Drives
Since 2007, AltaSteel and the USW Local 5220 have also run annual food drives. Each year we have raised over 1 ton of food which is donated to local food banks in Edmonton and Sherwood Park. The local food banks in turn, provide food to agencies, churches, and food depots that provide food services to people in need. These food services can be in the form of food hampers, meals, and/or snacks.
