Alberta Transportation is responsible for Alberta’s extensive transportation network and water management infrastructure, including, but not limited to:

  • highways
  • bridges
  • culverts
  • ferries
  • dams
  • reservoirs
  • canals

Alberta Transportation’s Environmental Management System (EMS) is an organized and formal approach to managing environmental issues with the goal of making environmental considerations part of daily activities. It is designed to:

  • integrate consideration of environmental impacts into decision-making processes
  • extend environmental considerations into policies, procedures and practices
  • prevent the occurrence of environmental incidents at the outset
  • establish Alberta Transportation’s due diligence in the event that an incident does occur
  • establish a means of monitoring Alberta Transportation’s environmental performance

About the system

The EMS applies to Alberta Transportation staff and consultants and contractors under contract to Alberta Transportation to build and maintain the province’s transportation and water infrastructure facilities.
