TELUS understands it has the power to make a positive impact on communities and the environment. Its natural partnership with the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) on a number of initiatives has furthered important conservation work across Canada.
Since 2017, TELUS has provided NCC with internet connectivity, data capacity, hardware, a wide area network and new phone systems to help NCC staff more effectively protect Canada’s natural spaces. Conservation today depends on big data and digital infrastructure to help inform securement and management activities. In helping protect 15 million hectares of habitat across the country, NCC relies on vast amounts of mapping and scientific information in its on-the-ground conservation work. From hand-held GPS devices, to drone footage and satellite imagery, staff have better connections, faster internet access and the latest technology when making decisions.
TELUS’ philosophy, “we give where we live,” comes to life through this partnership and its commitment to help save priority ecosystems across the country.
Since 2010, TELUS has invested close to $2 million in NCC initiatives as part of a focus on protecting Canada’s natural environment, connecting NCC customers to nature and protecting habitat and the species that live there. These initiatives have included supporting NCC’s Nature Score program, matching Giving Tuesday donations since 2019, the Shop Wildly campaign that raised over $215,000 to support projects across the country, a successful e-bill conversion initiative where, for each TELUS customer who converted from a paper bill to an e-bill, TELUS donated $2 to NCC, and in 2012 by celebrating NCC’s 50 years of conservation work as Presenting Sponsor of NCC’s 50th Anniversary Gala.
