A Cleaner Energy Future

At Canacol, we firmly believe in the importance of preserving and protecting our natural environment. Our environmental management is a fundamental pillar of our corporate strategy. We acknowledge the potential impact our operations can have on the environment, which is why take a comprehensive approach to minimizing our ecological footprint. We are committed to delivering natural gas in accordance with the highest standards of operational and environmental safety, thereby supporting Colombia's clean and equitable energy transition.

Energy is crucial for our lives, but man-made climate change is real, caused by burning large quantities of hydrocarbons globally. An abundant supply of economic and clean energy is key to the growth and development of each nation, but so is a healthy and clean environment. As a leading gas company, we are committed to supplying a cleaner energy future for millions of people, in which the health and well-being of future generations is the foundational goal of our efforts. We fully support the Colombian national transition plan, in which the use of natural gas in Colombia is expected to continue growing.
