Working Together
Central to Canadian Natural’s operating philosophy is the belief that by working together we can create more value. It is embedded into our strategies and demonstrated in every aspect of our business. We work with local and regional businesses to identify and facilitate economic opportunities, building local capacity. This is how we work together to build business partnerships.

Creating Value
Creating value in everything we do is at the core of our business. Canadian Natural and stakeholders create shared value through the joint pursuit of opportunities that generate economic value and mutual benefit. Additionally, our business units create value through investments in research and development, and advancing technology implementation. These advancements help us deliver energy needed by the world in a safe, effective, efficient, and environmentally responsible way. Read more about our Research and Development initiatives.
