The First Nations Major Projects Coalition (FNMPC) is pleased to announce Pattern Energy (Patern) as the renewable energy member of its Sustaining Partners Program. The program furthers FNMPC’s ability to advance relationships between its members and the private sector on issues of mutual interest. Cenovus, along with existing program members CIBC, Cenovus Energy, Colliers Project Leaders, COWI, Gowling WLG, IBI Group and New Gold Inc., will benefit from an exclusive relationship with FNMPC that will be focused on advancing progressive Indigenous business initiatives between the partners and FNMPC members. In working with these companies, FNMPC will further advance strategies that promote meaningful Indigenous inclusion in major developments and articulate Indigenous perspectives concerning environmental, social and governance (ESG) investment standards and sustainable business practices generally.
“Pattern Energy shares FNMPC’s vision for Indigenous equity ownership in net zero-focused energy and climate solutions infrastructure projects, says Chief Sharleen Gale, Chair of FNMPC. “The commitment made by Pattern Energy to join the FNMPC Sustaining Partners group supports our most important work. It allows FNMPC to create pathways to reconciliation by working closely with a select group of private sector partners who share our vision for meaningful Indigenous inclusion in the economic mainstream of Canada.”
