Neptune Terminals has been part of the North Shore for almost 50 years. We are driven by our commitment to safe, environmentally responsible operations, consideration for our neighbours, and support for our local community.
This Christmas, Neptune Terminals employees pitched in to donate a food, toiletries, cleaning products, toys and other gifts to help make Christmas a little brighter for a North Van family, identified by our community partner,North Shore Neighbourhood House.
We spoke to UWLM
Vice-President of Resource Development, Brenda Aynsley,
about how employee donations and corporate matching from organizations like Neptune help them support critical services in our community.
Brad joined Neptune in October as Vice President of Health & Safety. We caught up to Brad on a sunny day on North Vancouver's waterfront to talk about what it takes to maintain a strong safety culture at Neptune.
On Saturday, September 23, Neptune employees and members of the community came together to clean up the shoreline and trail at Harbourview Park, removing 80 pounds of garbage! The volunteers covered just under a kilometer of shoreline, picking up left behind and washed up trash and more than 150 cigarette butts.
As part of our commitment to be a good neighbour, Neptune sponsors a variety of youth sports, primarily at the introductory levels.
"Investing in kids is good for the whole community,” says Neptune President, Jim Belsheim. “Sports help kids develop self-esteem, leadership, teamwork and other social skills that will serve them into adulthood."
Neptune made a donation for two scholarships to the Urban Spirit Foundation,
which helps urban Aboriginals living in the region move from poverty to self-sufficiency through education and employment training opportunities, secondary and post-secondary scholarships and community based programs.
