This report discloses sustainability data for the fiscal year ended as at December 31, 2015. Assessment of material issues continued through the first quarter of 2016. The consolidated data for key indicators can be found in the Measuring our Performance Table.
Unless otherwise stated, we report data for our operations on a 100% ownership basis (e.g., for a 97.5%-owned operation, we report 100% of the data). Data is reported using the metric system and Canadian dollars, unless otherwise stated.
Where available, we include comparative historical data to demonstrate trends. Historical data is reported based on the scope of the report for the respective year. The scope of the report can change year to year, depending on acquisitions or sales of assets. In our efforts to continually improve and standardize our annual reporting process, the interpretation of data from year to year can often change. Certain comparative amounts for 2014 and 2013 have been reclassified or restated to conform to the presentation adopted for 2015.
